Chiclayo Tours - Tours in Lambayeque

Sipan and Huaca Rajada
Half Day


In the department of Lambayeque, 33 km from Chiclayo, in Túcume lies the Valley of the Pyramids, one of the main pre-Inca complexes in Peru due to the size and quality of the structures. Made up of dozens of adobe mud-brick pyramids built around the sacred Mount La Raya, the valley provides an opportunity to mount expeditions to archaeological sites, participate in archaeological digs and ancient rituals and listen to oral traditions.

Throughout the visit, travelers will experience an intense cultural exchange with local inhabitants through visits to textiles and pottery workshops, as well as participating in religious festivities and tasting the exquisite and varied local cooking.

Lord of Sipan Tomb Huaca Rajada


Mochican archaeological reservation, located 35 km. (21.7 miles) southeast of Chiclayo. In 1987 Dr. Walter Alva began his investigations in this huaca, thanks to an initial hint given by some "huaqueros" (people from the region dedicated to profane huacas), and discovered the tombs of Seņor de Sipan (Lord of Sipan), tombs of priests and important Mochicans, of ritual character.

He had also discovered, the tombs "El Sacerdote" (The Priest) and the tomb of the "Viejo Seņor de Sipan" (Old Lord of Sipan).

The excavation in this location, constituted the first important tomb scientifically explored in Peru, being able to obtain an incalculable historical value, for allow knowing new aspects of the Mochica Culture and the reconstruction of its past. At the moment, the copies of the discovery of Seņor de Sipan are located in the original place where they were founded; besides being in the process of investigation and with new excavations by the Bruning Museum.
