Peru visitors urged to venture north
26 Jul 2011

Travellers planning to visit Peru have been encouraged to venture north to discover some of the country's lesser-known sites and attractions.

The region is home to pre-Incan sites associated with the Moche culture, such as El Brujo, which is the final resting place of Senora de Cao, who lived around the year 450 AD.

Visitors can also see Chan Chan, a mud-brick citadel dating back to the pre-Hispanic era, and the Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna pyramids, which are situated 500 metres away from one another.

More information about the Moche people and their society is available from the Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum in Lambayeque, not far from the city of Chiclayo.

Northern Peru is also home to Trujillo, capital of La Libertad, and coastal areas where holidaymakers can try a range of outdoor activities.

Travellers planning a tour of the South American country can begin their trip by catching flights to Lima, which are available with Delta, KLM, American Airlines and Air France, among other carriers.
