FD: Museo Sicán + Bosque de Pomac + Túcume

TRAVEL SCHEDULE

Start 8:30 am, finish 18:00 h; duration 9h30 min.
The museum of Sicán is located just outside of Chiclayo and shows a great collection with (golden) objects found in Bosque Pomac. Some of these golden objects belong to the most beautiful ever found in the province of Lambayeque, or maybe even in the whole of Peru.
From Sicán you visit Bosque de Pomac (also called Batan Grande), where they have discovered different tombs from the Sicán culture (800 – 1300 AC). In 1992 an archeological team discovered a tomb of an elite member of Sicán society. From this tomb, some 1.2 tons of precious metals – mostly jewelry and religious artifacts – were removed and brought to the museum of Sican.
During a short guided hike through the forest of Bosque de Pomac, you will learn more about its history, the different tombs (including Huaca Las Ventanas), the flora, fauna and the different bird species endemic to this area. You will also visit “El Arbol Milaro”, a huge carob tree of more than 500 years old. According to the indigenous people this tree has performed several miracles. From the carob tree you will visit El Mirado (The Viewpoint), with a panoramic view over the surroundings over the forest and its tombs.
Your last visit of today is to the pyramids/ tombs of Tucume, located on the other side of Chiclayo, 30 km from the center. 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. It’s believed that the site has been inhabited between 800-1350, 1350-1450 and 1450-1532 A.C. by different cultures, including the Lambayeque, Chimú and even Inca’s.
