NORTHERN PERU

 The North Coast of Peru is characterized by a few large valleys, which break up the monotony of the desert,  and presents some of the oldest monumental architecture of the Andes. 

NORTHERN PERU

Brujo Complex

Peru is steeped in a rich archaeological heritage, with some of the most important sites being found in the coastal desert of the northern coast, and in the southern Andean Highlands.  In this guide a general overview of the most important sites in these areas is presented, enabling the reader to gain an insight into Peruvian archaeology and the cultures to whom this archaeological legacy is owed.

By the third millenium BC the early inhabitants of this region had developed a highly efficient economy based primarily on the rich maritime resources of the Peruvian Coast.  Before the advent of large-scale irrigation agriculture, and the appearance of ceramics, very complex societies, about which we know precious little, had emerged.

lt is considered to be one of the few regions in the world where pristine states emerged.

 

MOCHE CULTURE

The spectacular North of Peru is rich in archaeology, history and scenic contrasts. Bounded by the cold waters of the world's most plentiful fishing grounds and the Amazon rainforest, lie the stark deserts, fertile valleys, mountains and cloud forests that gave birth to several great pre-Inca civilizations. 

From the 1st to the 15th Century AD the most prominent of these cultures - Moche, Lambayeque, Chimu and Chachapoyas - achieved great sophistication and skill in ceramics, agriculture, architecture, metallurgy and warfare. Their vast and mysterious citadels, tombs and temples grace the outskirts of some of the principal cities of the north - Chiclayo, Trujillo and Chachapoyas.

Cajamarca is a city of colonial charm, rolling Andean countryside, and home to the important archaeological sites of Ventanillas of Otuzco and Cumbemayo. It is a place of great historical significance - in this city Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro captured, imprisoned, ransomed, and executed Inca Emperor Atahualpa, unleashing the destruction of Inca civilization. Travelers may stroll in the town square - site of the first and decisive battle between the Spanish and the Inca - and visit the ransom rooms that were filled with gold and silver by legions of loyal Inca subjects in the attempt to buy the freedom of their doomed regent
