Trujillo to Chiclayo with El Brujo
Trujillo, Northern Peru
On the way to Chiclayo, visit the archaeological site of El Brujo where the famous mummy, the Lady of Cao, was discovered in 2006.
Today, you will explore the archaeological complex of El Brujo and the Cao Museum. This is the site where the tomb and the remains of Lady of Cao, a Moche woman who ruled the Chicama Valley (making her possibly the first known female ruler of Peru), were discovered. The museum documents 5000 years of Andean history and culture in this area. From the top of Huaca Cao, enjoy a panoramic view of the entire complex dotted with adobe pyramids. Arrive in Chiclayo in the late afternoon.
