Chiclayo Tours and Travels
Set on the Pan-American Highway in Peru’s little visited northern reaches, the city of Chiclayo is the region’s commercial heart and an important trading post. Of more relevance to the intrepid traveller, Chiclayo is also home to a number of fascinating archaeological sites and treasures, having been inhabited by several successive ancient cultures. The Temple of Sipan is the most famed of these sites with one of the richest tombs in all of Latin America. Between 200 and 600AD, anyone of importance in the Mochica culture was buried here along with their precious grave objects ranging from gold goblets to turquoise jewellery. These treasures are now housed in a fascinating museum located in the colonial town of Lambayeque, 12km north of Chiclayo. South of Chiclayo the ruined colonial town of Zaña displays architectural evidence of how wealthy this settlement once was, from the elaborate arches and columns of old churches to the elegant facades of residential mansions.Read More
