"Huaca Cao Viejo" is an archaeological site dating back to the Moche culture (100 BC-650 AD).
It is a badly damaged, stepped pyramid with a central court that was probably used primarily for religious ceremonies. This pyramid is undoubtedly the most impressive Moche site in the Chicama Valley and is nowadays more often referred to as "EL BRUJO" ("The Sorcerer").
El Brujo Site Museum
This current name is due to the common practice of shamans of the North coast (who also are called “brujos” or “curanderos”) to hold some of their healing ceremonies at prominent hills or prehispanic ruins, which they consider to be places of power.
