It reminded me of part of an Inca trail that I had been on inChachapoyas, about 20 years ago.
In Túcume, tourists will find the remains of a great truncated Mochica pyramid and a site museum directed by the archaeologist Alfredo Narváez. Nearby, in the city of Lambayeque, the Royal Tombs of Sipán Museum, directed by the archaeologist Walter Alva, displays the original jewelry and the remains of the Señor de Sipán (Lord of Sipán).
Besides the Huaca de la Luna, tourists can visit San José de Moro, where they will find an interesting historical sequence, because the researchers led by archaeologist Luis Jaime Castillo found, remains that have supplied information about the transition period in this site: the moment when the fall of the Mochica kingdom started and the rise of Lambayeque culture began.
At El Brujo, its first inhabitants were the men of Huaca Prieta (some 5,000 years ago). Then the Mochicas built three big temples (huacas) there, outstanding for their beautiful mural paintings. After the fall of the Moche kingdom, the site was occupied successively by the people from Lambayeque and Chimú cultures and later by the mestizos from colonial times.
Those on the Moche Route will be able to enjoy the beauty of other places with cultural interest, such as the adobe city of Chan Chan, of the Chimú culture (IX and XV a.C.), historical Trujillo and northern beaches like Huanchaco.
