If you are going to see the ruins, you just have to go here first to get the history and perspective. Do it with a docent or an audio tour to get the proper perspective.

You may go here to see the ruins ~ and they are incredible...but the museum is informative, well-done, has great lighting and beautiful artifacts along with intriguing stories that then make the visit to the ruins more remarkable. (I highly suggest beginning at the museum).

Another not to be missed site in the Trujillo area. It is a UNESCO space. Archaeologists still working, but beautiful carvings exposed. This pre-Inca Moche cultural site has quite a bit of restoration....to much, but was done when this was in vogue.
