Trujillo

This is Peru’s third largest city and was founded in 1535 by Pizarro. It still has its distinctive ironwork fronting on the colonial buildings. One of the biggest attractions in the Trujillo area is Chan Chan, which was the capital of the Chimu Empire. This is one of the largest archaeological sites in the world. In addition to Chan Chan, there are several other Chimu sites, including La Huaca Arco, which is one of the best-preserved sites. You can also visit the Moche Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, which are located in this area.
There are also some pleasant beaches around Trujillo. Some of the best times to travel in this area would be at the end of January, when they have the Fiesta de la Marinera or in late September, when you can attend the Fiesta de la Primavera, which has the most famous parade in Peru.
