The Incas & The Moches
(4 Days / 3 Nights)
Explore the amazing North, visiting both archaeological sites and areas of great natural beauty where the ancient Moche and the more recent Incas lived. With two nights in Cajamarca and one in Chiclayo, this itinerary includes visits in and around Cajamarca: the historic colonial mansions, churches and museums of the old city; the Ransom room, where the Inca emperor Atahualpa is said to have been kept captive by Francisco Pizarro; the ancient tomb site known as the Ventanillas de Otuzco; the Andean highland countryside -- and Chiclayo: the adobe pyramids of Túcume; the Sipán archaeological site, where the fabulous Royal Tombs were discovered; and the Museum of the Royal Tombs in Lambayeque, where the contents of those tombs are displayed. In Cajamarca we include free access and a massage at La Laguna Seca Spa, which is both the best hotel in the region and an abundant natural hot spring, where Atahualpa took his last bath before his fall into Spanish captivity.
