  • The Royal Tombs Museum in Lambayeque is a great experience, in fact it is one of the best museums in Peru. But the experience is completed if we make the effort and go to Huaca Rajada, the place where the remains were found. The first time that I was all very messy. Today the experience changed 180 degrees, is Museum of site is spectacular. I definitely recommend it.

  • Huaca rajada is the place where is found the tombs of the Lord of Sipan and several others characters of it culture mochica. The remains were moved to the Museum of the Royal Tombs, but in the cracked huaca site Museum reproductions and the remains of other tombs can be seen. You can also visit the huaca and the exact place of burial. It is advisable to carry out this visit to the Museum of the Royal tombs.
