Founded in 1550, Lambayeque is well worth the detour for its Spanish allure. The town's architectural unity and colonial charm are visible in the paved lanes, immense casonas and flower-decked patios, wrought-iron windows and beautiful balconies. A church and two museums will finish the tour of the town.
