Tour to Dragón Temple, Chan Chan Archaeological Site and Huanchaco Beach

Start your visit at the 'Huaca Dragon' or 'Huaca Arco Iris', from the Chimu culture. It is a prominent religious monument and ceremonial and administrative centre, built with adobe and whose murals are decorated with friezes showing anthropomorphic figures and representing the rainbow. Its pyramidal structure served to perform ceremonies related to rain and fertility. Continue your walk at Chan Chan; the impressive mud city declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Considered the capital of the Chimu culture, it is composed of nine citadels that cover an area of more than 20 square kilometres and make it the largest in America. The details on its walls reflect the great work done in its construction and that has remained more than a thousand years until today. The last point of the tour is Huanchaco, one of Trujillo's most traditional beaches and famous for totora horses: boats made of vegetable fibres that artisanal fishers use to navigate between the waves of the Pacific.
