Huacas del Sol y de la Luna

Visit the ruins of Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna, 15 minutes from Trujillo. Predating the Inca, the Mochica began to flourish in this area around 100 C.E., and these sister sites, both built around 450 C.E., are considered two of the civilization’s greatest archaeological legacies. Though Huaca del Sol is the larger of the two, Huaca de la Luna is better preserved—and filled with famed friezes depicting the culture’s rites and mythology.
