The history of the Moche was a real suprise as i was ignorant to their existance. I am so happy to learn about them and see the great things that they have done in Peru.

“Arguably the best attraction in Trujillo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Dating back to the Moche culture, the temple of the moon is a spectacularly preserved archeological site near Trujillo, in the north of Peru.

Colorful frescoes have been unearthed in incredible detail. The scenes depict a culture dedicated to war, and which frequently executed captives. Definitely worth a visit.
