The Huaca de la luna was a very interesting visit, with some impressive views of the pyramid. The english speaking guide was excellent, and I think it's probably the best site in Trujillo area.

If you only have time for one ruin in Trujillo, skip Chan Chan and go here instead. It is from an older culture than Chan Chan and much better preserved. You will have a guide in English or Spanish to explain the history and excavation...More

This site has some beautifully painted walls and relief carvings that have been discovered and are on display at the original locations. The temple of the sun is not open to the public at this time but the temple of the moon is magnificent.

you don't know what to expect by the outside but once you're inside you won't be desappointed, and wait for the main square. You can take pictures and the whole place
