Trujillo is also home to Huanchaco which is a relaxed beach town about 30 minutes from the city and closeto Chan Chan.
Chiclayo is the next city on the way up the coast. The main draw here is to visit the museum of the Lord of Sipan and the archeological sites left over by the Moche culture. The Lord of Sipan was a Moche king who left behind one of the most fabulous tombs ever found in Latin America. The tomb was discovered untouched by grave robbers so gave an important insight in to the Moche people, many beautifully crafted gold pieces were discovered in the area. Around the area of Lambeyeque are many pyramids that could easily be mistaken for hills, the Moche built many of these pyramids for their ceremonial practices and they were in use until the arrival of the Spanish.
