Capital of the La Libertad region, Trujillo is a charming colonial city north of Lima on the Pacific coast. Heir to the radiant Chan Chan Chan civilization, countless remains litter the city and its surroundings. Let us mention for example the pyramids of Moche, the largest in Peru. But they are only part of the charm of the regional capital: recent history is just as exciting. A crucible of many revolts (against the colonizers, for independence), it is also the birthplace of the APRA, a political party originally Marxist and fiercely contesting, at the beginning of the century. The pleasant climate and proximity to fertile and abundant valleys have earned it its nickname of the "city of eternal spring". The charm of its old cobbled streets, wrought iron windows, carved wooden balconies and numerous small churches give a subtle charm to the city centre. And moreover, its cultural dynamism and fine cuisine will undoubtedly delight your heart.
