Trujillo

(4/5 based on 5,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, museums

Capital of Culture

Considered the country's capital of culture, Trujillo was the birthplace of the North Group, a community of artists and intellectuals that included celebrated poet Cesar Vallejo and notable novelist Ciro Alegria. A trip to Trujillo reveals a city proudly preserving its rich cultural heritage, best experienced at one of many local festivals. When it comes to planning a Trujillo itinerary, the city's lively arts scene and charming colonial architecture (including a walkable historic center) tend to get eclipsed by the nearby archeological sites. Indeed, the biggest attractions in Trujillo remain the ruins of pre-Columbian settlements and temples, some of which date back over a thousand years. Add Trujillo and other destinations to your itinerary using our Peru trip itinerary planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Trujillo

Trujillo offers surprisingly few sleeping options for a city of its size, featuring only a few mid-range hotels suitable for the majority of visitors. If all you need is a decent bed in a quiet part of town, look for hostels catering to budget travelers. Visitors who don't need to stay in Trujillo itself can also consider the nearby beach town of Huanchaco, which offers more choices at a range of prices.
