Visit a Moche pyramid

EL Brujo

The archaeological complex of El Brujo and the Señora de Cao Museum offer a rewarding way to break the journey between Trujillo and Chiclayo.

The drive from Trujillo to the elegant Spanish city of Chiclayo takes you through a diverse cultural landscape whose ancient monuments and cities pre-date the arrival of the Spanish. En route, stop at El Brujo archaeological complex, where an extraordinary mural adorns a Moche pyramid. Also visit the Señora de Cao Museum, housing the tattooed mummy of the first ruler of the Moche civilization, the Lady of Cao.
