*About Trujillo: Trujillo is a friendly, colonial city and at the same time one of the main economic and cultural centers of northem Peru. What is more, it is the capital of the marinera dance and caballo de paso (a fine breed of horses). Trujillo is known as the "The Capital of the Eternal Spring" . Why? due to its mild climate, and you can see it especially since September. Where u will see a big parade which is called "Corso de la Primavera" the International Festival of Spring.

Very near the city you will find numerous and wonderful archaeological monuments of the Mochica and Chimú cultures, outstanding Chan Chan's citadel, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Beaches near Trujillo are ideal for visitors, not just because of the superb local seafood, fresh caught, or the cool sea breeze, but also for the opportunities for adventure sports and contact with tradition. Huanchaco is a picturesque fishing cove where one can find the ancient craft that appeared on Mochica pottery and friezes at Chan Chan.
Trujillo is a city of rich colonial architecture and many archaeological centers, where u will learn a lot.

    I toured these places in October of 2005 and it is everything sweetgy claimed and much more. The friendliness and hospitality of the people of Trujillo was emotionally overwhelming for me.
