  • The Museo de la moche Huacas is where are parts found in Huaca de la luna and del sol. At the Museo parts are exposed and you pay an entry of 10 soles. After seeing the Museum will meet the ruins there luna which is next door. A guide explains everything. And from the top you can see the ruins of the city and Huacas del sol. The visit is fast, cheap and worth it. To get there just take one of the buses in Trujillo

  • The State of preservation of the ruins is really impressive! The colors are very vivid, and points out the level of knowledge that these people had!
