  • Excellent view of the worldview moche I inhabit Northern Peru between the III and VIII. It is preferable to take a tour from the city centre.

  • Nice Museum in which you'll see native artifacts that will allow you to learn about the development of the pre-Inca cultures that inhabited the North of the Peru. It complemented very well with a visit to the pyramids of the Sun and the moon. If you're in Moche (district of Trujillo) turn, you won't regret it.
