    HUACA RAJADA (LORD OF SIPÁN): In 1987 a team of archaeologists discover the skeleton of the Lord of Sipán one of the greatest warlords of the Moche people. And the discovery have enabled historians and archaeologists to piece together much of the lost history of an impressive civilization which dominated most of northern Peru for centuries. The Lord of Sipán was buried with his head pointing south, his nose and ears covered with gold relics and his feet clad in silver. To accompany him, his subjects sacrificed women, children and llamas, while the finest warriors of the era accompanied their overlord on his voyage to the Afterlife.
    El MUSEO NATIONAL TUMBAS REALES DE SIPAN: This modern museum houses most of the important artefacts which Dr. Walter Alva Alva found in 1987. He helped found and support construction of the museum, which opened in 2002. The museum was designed to resemble the ancient Moche tombs and the museum's main attraction is the Lord of Sipan and his entourage, who accompanied him to the after world with him. The warriors who were buried with him had amputated feet, as if to prevent their leaving the tomb. The women were dressed in ceremonial clothes. Dogs, llamas, and more than 80 huacos (works of ceramic pottery) were also buried in the tomb.
    THE NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM BRUNING:The Brüning Museum, also known as Museo Regional Arqueológico Enrique Bruning de Lambayeque was inaugurated in 1924. It is an excellent museum based on the collections of Bruning gathered at the end of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century. The Peruvian government acquired this collection in 1925. This museum has been constantly enriched by pieces obtained in confiscations, donations and discoveries. The most recent procurement is the pieces acquired in the Grave of the "Master of Sipán". His remains and the mortuary trousseau rest between the walls of the museum.

After the visit the rest of the day will be free.
    HUACA EL BRUJO: The El Brujo Archaeological Complex 60km/38mi north of Trujillo is an ancient monument of the Moche culture. Huaca El Brujo (or Cortada/Partida) and Huaca Cao Viejo (or Huaca Blanca) were built by the Moche sometime between 1 and 600 AD. Huaca Cao Viejo is famous for its polychrome reliefs and mural paintings, and the discovery of the Señora de Cao, the first known Governess in Peru. A letter found during excavations at the site may contain translations of numbers written in Quingnam or Pescadora using the decimal system, the first physical evidence for existence of either of these languages.
    CHAN CHAN: The ancient Chimú kingdom (700-1400 AD) founded their capital by the banks of the Moche River in the department of La Libertad and called it Jang-Jang, which in the ancient Mochica language means "sun-sun". Chan Chan, which spans an area of 20 square km, is the largest mud-brick citadel dating back to the pre-Hispanic era. To build it, the Chimú architects used clay, mud, pebbles, wood, reeds, straw and cane, materials which enable the citadel to blend in with the sandy coasts. The complex is made up of many cities within a city, each of which has its own single entrance which leads down a corridor that opens up into other passageways lining walls and buildings featuring some marvellous rectangular architecture: inner patios, residences, administrative buildings, temples, platforms and storehouses. The walls were decorated with haut-relief friezes done in geometric and animal figures. The T-shaped platform that housed the king's burial chamber was the most important construction in the complex. The citadel was surrounded by outlying quarters which housed the kingdom's producers and servants. The separate cities today have been given the names of the archaeologists who studied them (Rivero, Tschudi, Bandelier, Uhle, Tello). The Rivero city was the seat of Minchancamán, the last of the Chimú rulers, who was captured by the Incas and taken to Cuzco, according to the Spanish chroniclers. The city was the urban centre of a vast regional state which covered half of the Peruvian coast, stretching from Tumbes on the Ecuadorian border down as far south as Lima. All roads branched out from Chan Chan.
