The third largest town of Peru, Trujillo is also one of the most welcoming of the northern coast. Famous for its graceful wrought-iron windows, carved wooden balconies and brightly coloured façades, the elegant colonial city is a leading tourist and cultural hub. Nearby are vestiges of the Chimú and Mochica civilisations, in particular the immense city of Chan Chan and pyramids of Moche, in addition to lovely beaches, the most picturesque of which is that of Huanchaco.

Recently excavated Pre-Incan treasures

Finely chiselled gold jewellery and puma-shaped, stirrup-spout earthenware bottles – the recent discoveries of the Moche culture unearthed at the Trujillo archaeological site and in the tomb at Lambayaque bear witness to the expert craft skills of the early Andean cities along the northern coast of Peru.
