The site is open daily year-round from the morning until the afternoon. Come early to avoid the crowds and the hot afternoon sun.

Wildcard

The History of the Long Temple At the Huaca Larga pyramid—which runs 2,000 feet (210 meters) in length—119 bodies were discovered buried underneath the massive structure. Evidence suggests that the bodies were part of a mass human sacrifice to the gods. Other findings are less grotesque, such as the murals and carvings of the Lambayeque god Naymlap, a revered deity who emerged from the sea and gave rise to the powerful city.
