The pyramids/ tombs of Tucume are located in the department of Lambayeque and 30 km from Chiclayo. Due to its size, Tucume is one of the main pre-Inca complexes in Peru. The archeological site contains around 26 tombs, ceremonial buildings and pyramids, all made of adobe. The highest structure is 35 meter. Itâ€™s believed that the site has been inhabited between 800-1350, 1350-1450 and 1450-1532 A.C. by different cultures, including the Lambayeque, ChimÃº and even Incaâ€™s.
On the way back to Chiclayo you will visit the Museum Tumbas Reales. This impressive museum is built in the shape of the original tomb of the important Moche King, Lord of SipÃ¡n. The very well organized museum exhibits most of the impressive findings, including very well crafted ceramics, textiles, bronze, silver and golden objects.
The presence of many original artifact and the impressive way they are presented to the public, make form Tumbas Reales one of the best museums of Peru.
The last visit of the day is to the original tomb of the Lord of SipÃ¡n (Huaca Rajada).
In 1987 part of this tomb was found coincidently by tomb raiders who started looting the site. When the authorityâ€™s found out they managed to get several artifacts back and started to explore the site with professional archeologists.

Finding the tomb of the Lord of SipÃ¡n is considered to be the most important archeological discovery from the North of Peru.
