trujillo Tourism is a major industry in Trujillo, due to the city's proximity to important sites where the Moche and Chimu civilizations evolved. These civilizations had highly skilled artisans, and many of their artifacts having been found during archaeological digs in the city. Nearby ruins include the Chimu adobe city of Chan Chan, the world's largest city built from that material. It is sometimes called Ciudad de la Luna (City of the Moon) because the people worshipped the moon; or de las Largas Murallas (of the Long Walls). In size and complexity, it has been compared with Teotihuacan in Mexico, and the ancient cities of Egypt. Other nearby ruins are the Moche ruins of Huaca del Sol, Huaca de la Luna, and El Brujo. In Trujillo we can find also the world-famous beach Huanchaco, is a surfing destination, is located just north of Trujillo. Trujillo's restaurants offer a wide variety of local food, such as shambar, mostly served on Mondays; ceviche, sopa teologa and cabrito.


TRUJILLO CITY TOUR

DESCRIPTION barra

09:30 AM You will be pick up from the hotel by our local guide, then you will board a private vehicle and we will start our city tour of Trujillo. Our first visit will take place at the archeological site of La Huaca del Dragon, also known as the as La Huaca del Arco Iris, (rainbow shrine) located to the outskirts of the city, some 4 kilometers, at the district of Esperanza. At the site we will see an ancient temple built with mud bricks that show on its huge walls representations on high relief of mysterious deities from the Chimu people, an old culture that ruled the northern lands of Peru about 1200 AD. Here the guide will explain you about these weird friezes on the walls. Our second visit will take place at the Cassinelli museum, a great private collection that has on display unique pieces from the different cultures that thrived on the north of Peru about 2000 years ago. At this remarkable museum you will be able to see genuine ceramics from the Moche Culture representation various types of animals, musical instruments, human deceases, different human races from ancient times and fine erotic scenes. This museum shows pieces mainly from the Mochica, Chimu and Recuay Culture. The Cassinelli museum is undoubtedly a small treasure of the city of Trujillo. Later we will drive our vehicle to the center of the city where we will visit the house of the emancipation, a historic place where the precursors of independence met for the forthcoming independence of Peru. In the interior we will be able to observe a beautiful mock-up that shows the historic center of Trujillo during the colonial epoch. Then we will visit the Urquiaga house, one wonderful construction of neoclassic style that once housed the liberator Simon Bolivar. In the interior of this colonial house we will appreciate Simon Bolivar’s desk, pottery collection and other interesting relics. Finally we will do a short walking tour around the main square of Trujillo and will be able to see the cathedral Trujillo, whose foundation dates from XVII century.
