NATIONAL PARKS TOURS COLOMBIA

ALL CULTURAL HIGHLIGHTS COMBINED WITH FABULOUS NATURE

 

CHICLAYO LAMBAYEQUE

Chiclayo Old Town

With a metropolitan population of almost 1,000,000 people, Chiclayo is a typical industrial coastal town. Besides a sympathetic Plaza de las armas, with a few late colonial buildings, there is not much that can attract tourists in the city itself, and Chiclayo old town is no more than the Plaza de las armas, which is not all that old.

 

However, the town is just a few kilometers away from one of Peru's great ancient monuments, the Royal Tumbes of the Lord of Chipan at the Huaca Rajada of Chipan monument.

Royal Tumbes of Chipan Museum

The findings were deemed so significant, that a special highly guarded museum has been built to keep the treasures of the Huaca Rajada of Sipán safe: the Royal Tumbes of Sipán Museum, a conspicuous modern building in Chiclayo.
