Itinerary

Day 01Túcume Pyramids - Site Museum & Museum of Royal Tombs of Sipán

(Full day – Lunch included)
We move 33 kms north-east of Chiclayo to reach Tucume, a place with a rich history where we find the archaeological site formed by 26 monumental adobe pyramids (Attention Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 04:00 pm). It is thought that the first people who inhabited the place were the inhabitants belonging to the Lambayeque culture and later the inhabitants of the Chimú and Inca cultures. Thanks to the archaeological project directed by the illustrious Norwegian researcher Thor Heyerdahl, the fruit of the research is exhibited in the Tucume Museum.
Finally we will visit the Royal Tombs of the Lord of Sipan Museum (Open Monday to Friday from 08:00 am to 04:00 pm), considered one of the most spectacular museums in America, which houses the most important Mochica archaeological remains and displays the ornaments and jewelry found in the tomb of the Lord of Sipan. With a pyramid-shaped design reminiscent of the ancient Moche, it has 3 levels, which show how the funerary structure was formed in the tomb located in Huaca Rajada.
Lunch included.
