Overview

We invites you to enjoy the beauty of the magical landscape of El Brujo Archaeological Complex and the testimony of the greatness of the Moche culture (200-800 AD). The Moche culture left a great architectural legacy as an expression of art, power and prestige of one of the biggest cultural developments of ancient Peru, comparable with the great civilizations of the world. We invite you to appreciate the richness of this society from the presente view. They left us a future ... The discovery of the Lady of Cao is proof of that.

This is a small site, but filled with history and some stunning colors. Also, the Museo Cao is worth the visit. Her burial site was found here and the artifacts are in the museum, as are a wealth of others from the site.

This was our last tour in a 16 day tour through Peru. The story behind the "Senora de Cao" is intriguing, but the drive to get here is long and rough. The details of El Brujo look much like the other Moche sites. The museum...More
