Magical Peru #8: Tumbas Reales de Sipán
– After visiting Trujillo, Chiclayo and the region, which included Chan Chan (Huaca del Dragon), the pyramids of Huaca de la Luna and Huaca del Sol, of the Moche ancient culture, the Chimu empire, and Huanchaco, a popular beach resort for Trujillo residents, we headed North to Chiclayo, where we will visit the Tumbas reales de Sipán (Tomb of Sipan) and one of the best museums in Peru, in the town of Lambayeque.
The pyramid-shaped Museum of the Royal Tombs of Sipán was inaugurated in 2002 and was inspired by Huaca Rajada, a Moche Mausoleum where the Lord of Sipán was buried 1,700 years ago.
After departing Lima, we headed to the North Coast. In Trujillo we stayed at the Hotel Colonial, which you can see on one of the previous videos. From Trujillo we visited the cities of Huanchaco and Chiclayo, and the archaeological sites of Huaca de la Luna, Huaca del Sol, Chan Chan and the tomb of the Lord of Sipán, including their museums.
Após passar algumas semanas apenas em Lima estudando espanhol e conhecendo o que a capital peruana tem a oferecer, nós partimos para explorar o país. Começando pela região Norte, fomos até Trujillo, Chiclayo, Huanchaco, Huacas del Sol e de la Luna, Chan Chan e o sítio arqueológico da Tumba do Lorde Sipán. Depois, descemos pelo Sul do Perú, em lugares como Arequipa e Lago Titicaca, e terminamos nossa jornada no interior, em Cusco e Machu Pichu.
