Reasons to Visit

Trujillo

The impressive colonial city of Trujillo, on the coast above Lima, attracts visitors with its colourful streets, comfortable climate and, above all, its proximity to some of the most interesting places in northern Peru. Amongst these are the world's largerst adobe city - Chan Chán. The former capital of the pre-Inca Chimú empire is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is remarkably well-preserved. Chan Chan is in a particularly dry part of the coastal desert, which has helped the adobe city to survive to this day. Nearby, the Temple of the Sun and Moon belong to the earlier Moche culture, dating to between 100-800AD, and have the largest abobe pyramid in Peru.

Close to Trujillo is also the traditional fishing village of Huanchaco Bay, where brave fishermen in their local reed boats carve out a living.
