It also has magnificent beaches such as Delicias, Salaverry, Buenos Aires, and Huanchaco where you can find the famous totora boats and the main sport is surf.
Chan Chan is the largest city of the Pre-Columbian era in South America and the largest adobe city in the world. After being the residence of the king, queens and priests, Chan Chan served as a headquarters for commercial, political and administrative issues of the Chimu culture.
In the city center, there are extravagant citadels and palaces that functioned as storage, residence, mausoleum and temples. In the other areas of the city there were placed for weaving textiles, metalwork, and carpentry, among others. Although the complex was built in one of the driest climates in Peru, they managed to fertilize their crops and luxurious gardens through an intelligent irrigation system.
Trujillo is also a city full of traditional celebrations: The National Contest of the Marinera (typical dance of the area) celebrated in January, the International Spring Festival, Peruvian “Caballo de paso” contest, exhibition and contests of totora boats, among others.
