Combination of gastronomy and history in Trujillo:
Visit to the archeological site of Las Huacas del Sol y la Luna, gigantic temples from the Moche culture (100-700 AC). Several structures on this site are still decorated with well conserved paintings on the walls. Many beautiful decorated golden and ceramic objects found on this archeological site can be seen in the site museum.
Transfer to the coastal town of Huanchaco. Here local fishermen still use the same model of small reet boats as the Moche civilization did more that 1000 years ago: Caballitos de Totoraâ€.
