Huaca Rajada (Sipán) Tours

Huaca Rajada (Sipán)
Every archaeologist dreams of finding a place like Huaca Rajada (Sipán). Forgotten in the desert for over 1,700 years, Huaca Rajada (Sipán) was a sacred burial site for Moche nobility and royalty. When local looters in 1987 were found with lavish gold artifacts, it tipped off police that a large discovery might be buried in the nearby desert. An archaeologist, Walter Alva, was called to the site to examine the possibility that other tombs might exist, and when his team unearthed the “Lord of Sipan” and his tomb of jewels and gold, it was heralded as the greatest discovery of the last 50 years of archaeology.
Address: Chiclayo, Peru
Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday

Daily excursion to Sipán (museum and archeological site) we start earlier.

star-4.5
We started two hours before the competition, at 8:30 in the morning, this gives us more time in each place to visit. Our tour guides are bilingual and the office staff too. Ventarrón, our oldest pyramid, sometimes needs repair of structures or maintenance, so if it is not possible to visit it we offer you the Brünning museum, here is a very complete sample of the entire history of our region with more than two thousand archaeological pieces originals Consider this in case a change is necessary. We always do three places per day. We stop at Lambayeque, in a traditional restaurant, for lunch, which is not included. Upon return we leave the group at your hotel, bus station or in the main city square.
