Chiclayo holidays

The main reason for visiting Chiclayo is use it as a base from which to explore the spectacular Lord of Sipan Tomb, the Lord of Sipan Museum and the Pyramids of Tucume. However Chiclayo itself is a pleasant place with a friendly atmosphere, distinctive cuisine and a strong musical tradition. The city was founded in the 1560’s as a rural Indian village by Spanish priests. Situated in the Lambayeque, one of Peru’s principal agricultural regions, Chiclayo has long since outgrown the other towns of the area and has an unparalleled archaeological and ethnographic heritage.
