  • Visit the tomb of the Lord of Sipàn is like stepping into an Egyptian Tomb ... except that in this case the tomb was found intact for which nothing is missing. Archaeological site and Museum modern and perfectly equipped.

  • A place that deserves a visit, and there is a possibility of understand a little more of the Sicán culture. The pyramids and tombs show that little-known story that is worth discovering

  • Go to Chiclayo is to know the Lord of Sipan, and to understand it, you must go to this place. It is very nice, friendly with children and the people who live there tell you local stories.
