  • Impressive Museum of the tomb of the Lord of Sipan and what they found in it. Layers and layers of gadgets on top of your body. All very well preserved. To leave take combi of Chiclayo to Lambayeque (very cheap). Elias Aguirre takes in the square, ask, everyone knows. It is also very nearby, Bruning, will walk. The Sipan photos are not allowed.
