Peru Trujillo travel Trujillo peru tours Peru information about trips hotels and Amazon lodges in Peru Trujillo:


Trujillo is a wonderful colonial style city whose houses show different architectural styles. Trujillo is the most important economic and cultural center of the north located on the Valley of the Moche River in the department of La Libertad. Founded in 1534, it took its name in honor of the Spanish city of Trujillo de Extremadura, the place where Francisco Pizarro was born. In the old times, the Mochicas, Lambayeques and Chimus inhabited the area.

Trujillo, Peru

The Chimus left the most beautiful pre-Inca piece of architecture: the City of Chan-Chan. It is considered the biggest adobe construction of America. In the outskirts of the city, there are other significant cities as valuable as Chan-Chan. They are El Brujo, la Huaca Dragon and the Huacas of the Sun and the Moon. These constructions are very old pre Columbian constructions. During republican times, the city developed thanks to agriculture, and big ranches producing sugar cane and cotton appeared.

But Trujillo is not only monuments and ranches; it is also a very joyful city, known as the home of Marinera, the most elegant dance of the country and a symbol for its people. The Peruvian Stepping Horse (Caballo Peruano de Paso) is another of Trujillo’s symbols. If you visit the city, you must also go to the beaches, famous for the ancient Caballitos de Totora and for having the best waves for surfing. Trujillo has so many attractions that it is the place to visit on the coast of Peru.
