La Libertad

Capital: Trujillo

General data :
City of Spring

Trujillo, capital of the department of la Libertad, is located 561 km north of Lima. Home of the "Marinera", one of Perú’s most famous dances, Trujillo also houses important archeological sites such as the extensive mud-brick ruins of Chan Chan, erstwhile capital of the Chimú kingdom (a.d.1000-1476). Covering some 20 km, Chan Chan is composed of ten self-contained compounds or "barrios", each built by the reigning Chimú monarch to house his courties and household, as well as storage facilities, a walk-in-well and, on the king’s death, his mausoleum.

Fifteen km from Trujillo lies Huanchaco, a picturesque fishing village where fishermen still fish from totora reed boats ("caballitos de totora"), unchanged since pre-Columbian days. Here you can enjoy the sunset and meal at one of the numerous seafood restaurants. Thirteen kilometers south of Trujillo lies the imposing temples ("huacas") of the Sun and the Moon, built of millions of sun-dried adobe bricks by the Moche who ruled between 200 b.c.-a.c.600.
