We stopped here during my exchange program, and while it was not the most interesting museum to me, the museum was great! It was very informative and had a lot of artifacts. It would be great for someone interested in architecture.

Very interesting ruins. Most of us thought it was better than other ruins in the are which are heavily reconstructed. This is the real thing!

I traveled with my wife last year, we both learned a lot from the Moche culture. Peru is beautiful. The food is very good and the people very affectionate.

I had a spare day after working in Trujillo for a while so booked a driver for 200 PS (probably too much but hey...) and headed out. Having read a few reviews, I agree with the consensus that you should end in this area as...More

If you are going to see the ruins, you just have to go here first to get the history and perspective. Do it with a docent or an audio tour to get the proper perspective.

The 'reveal' of the walls shown in this photo captures the amazement of this archaeological site. You will be in awe of the Moche!

You may go here to see the ruins ~ and they are incredible...but the museum is informative, well-done, has great lighting and beautiful artifacts along with intriguing stories that then make the visit to the ruins more remarkable. (I highly suggest beginning at the museum).

Another not to be missed site in the Trujillo area. It is a UNESCO space. Archaeologists still working, but beautiful carvings exposed. This pre-Inca Moche cultural site has quite a bit of restoration....to much, but was done when this was in vogue.
