Traditional Trujillo 03 Days, Trujillo

Trujillo is a friendly and colonial city, which is at the same time one of the main economic and cultural centers of northern Peru. What is more, it is the capital of the marinera dance and Peruvian El Paso horse breeding. It was the center of the Chimú culture (1100-1400 AD), whose Chan Chan citadel is the largest mud-brick construction in the Americas.

DAY 03 : CHAN CHAN / HUANCHACO 

Breakfast and visit to Chan Chan, the ancient Capital of the Chimu Kingdom is a "must" for all visitors; is considered to be the largest mud-brick city in the pre-Hispanic Latin America, its higher development were reached between the XII and XIV centuries, then it was conquered by the Incas and finally abandoned before the arrival of the Spaniards. From the remains of this immense complex, we can deduce that the Chimu people were excellent engineers and architects.
