With cheap flights to Trujillo, get ready to explore this UNESCO World Heritage site in Northwestern Peru, also referred to as "the Capital of the everlasting spring." Whether you're coming to Trujillo to view the colonial architecture or Chan Chan, the biggest adobe brick city on earth, then Trujillo should be the next place on your list to visit. Buying cheap tickets to Trujillo is a great way to start your vacation off right, and will make your South American vacation that much more enjoyable.
When you book your flights to Trujillo, start off with a visit to Chan Chan, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of Trujillo's crown jewels. It's considered the largest adobe city in the world, and dates all the way back to the 13th century (pre-Incan.) It originally was home to about 60,000 inhabitants, and was the site of an ancient (and huge) capital city which housed the royals. It is also believed that sacrifices took place here, although this has not been confirmed. The wall carvings are truly exquisite here, and it's highly recommended to tour the site with a guide to truly appreciate its history. There's also an interesting museum here, and Chan Chan is home to an active archaeological dig site.
Huaca del Sol y la Luna is the other major ruin you must plan on visit in Trujillo. Originally built by the Moche, they are two large adobe pyramids which are still being unearthed, but which are believed to be religious centers (with some speculating that Huaca del Sol was a dwelling for the upper class,) where human sacrifice and other religious rituals took place. When you come inside the pyramid structures, you will see an active dig site as well as wall paintings, and beautiful murals. The museum is also enjoyable as well as highly informative, with pottery, jewelry and many artifacts to take in. Come and visit the historical richness of Huaca del Sol y Luna with cheap tickets to Trujillo.
