"TRUJILLO: HUACA EL DRAGON / HUACA LA ESMIRALDA" Peru Things to Do Tip by swesn

Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos

These are partly restored temples of nearly the same style as Chan Chan but of much smaller scale. They are located some distance away, so you need to take one of the minibuses.

The entrance fee for Chan Chan includes visit to Huaca El Dragon and Huaca La Esmeralda.

It is good to engage a guide to explain the motifs and histories in more details. Watch out for the stylised 'rainbow' friezes in Huaca El Dragon (also known as Huaca Arco Iris which means 'Rainbow').
