Known as the city of the eternal spring for its warm weather all year long, it developed two important civilizations: Moche and Chimu. Later on it became a colonial city.

Amongst all the different attractions this wonderful city has to offer, we find Chan-Chan, the biggest city like fortress made out of clay in America. “El Brujo” is a complex where figures of dancers and worriers stand out.  All the area is known to be very esoteric.

This city counts with the Huanchaco bay, where up to these days fishermen use “caballitos de totora” boats made out of totora plants which were used by the Moche and Chimu people to obtain the rich fruits from the northern sea.
