These amazing huacas (pron. wa-cas), or temples, were built during the Mochica era (1-650 A.D.) on the left side of the Moche River in Southern Trujillo. Huacas were traditionally built against a sacred hill, and the Huaca de la Luna required more than fifty million adobe bricks to be constructed. In front of the Huaca de la Luna is the Huaca del Sol, probably the largest mud-brick structure in the Americas. The Huaca del Sol is 372 yards long, 175 yards wide and was originally over 130 feet high! Like the Huaca de la Luna, it has a series of terraces and slopes leading to its summit. You'll also visit the Huaca de la Luna, built as an extension to the hill, which uncovers the secrets of the Mochica civilization through walls with vibrantly painted reliefs carved from the adobe structure.

After this captivating historical sojourn you will drive to Trujillo, which still retains much of its colonial charm and is adorned by a splendid backdrop consisting of the vivid green and brown terrain of the Andean foothills. Be sure to visit its pleasant and spacious Plaza de Armas, where the main Cathedral, City Hall stand. Surrounding this impressive Colonial square, you'll find many magnificently, richly-colored buildings with decorative windows or balconies, including the must-see Libertador Hotel and Orbegoso Mansion. Following your visit, you'll drive through the city before returning to the pier.

Please note: Comfortable shoes are a must, as there are ramps and stairs to negotiate at the temples and a considerable amount of walking. Sunscreen and a hat are also essential. Bear in mind that these areas are undergoing a continuous excavation process.
