Sun, color and fun are waiting for you in the ancient land of the Moche Empire. The Moche civilization flourished in the northern coast of Peru, in the province of La Libertad. Trujillo, the economical capital of the province, and the third largest city in Peru, is located near the Moche River Valley. The Moche civilization was formed in this valley around 100 to 800 AD. This culture is particularly appreciated because of its production of ceramics, which relied primarily on two colors: red and white. Visit the pre-Hispanic ruins of "Huacas del Sol y La Luna," and the Royal Tomb of the Lord of Sipans. Peru Travel Now takes you to this archeological tour where you can visit ancient sites in the desert, pyramids, monumental constructions, see work done in gold as well as ancient irrigation systems and stunning natural scenery. The mystery lies here; be prepared to unveil its many hidden treasures.
