Breakfast, then we headsouth of town to visit theTemples of the Sun and Moon, built by the Moche Culture in around 500 ad. These 130-foot-tall pyramids are thought to be the largest adobe structures in the Americas. The complex sits about three miles inland, southeast of the modern city of Trujillo and is considered by many scholars to be the former capital of the Moche State The complex is dominated by two huge adobe brick buildings: the Pyramid of the Sun, or Huaca del Sol, and the artificial platform called Huaca de la Luna, or Temple of the Moon. On the quarter-mile-wide, open plain between them, researchers have found many graves, most of them looted, as well as evidence of large scale manufacturing covered by a layer of sediment up to 10 feet thick.

A considerable number of administrators, religious, and manufacturing specialists must have been living at this great prehispanic settlement. Then go toChan Chan and Huanchaco- 5km from Trujillo is the imperial city of the CHIMU - the largest adobe city in the world. The ruins consist of nine great compounds built by CHIMU kings. The nine meter high perimeter walls surrounded sacred enclosures with usually one narrow entrance. Inside, serried rows of storerooms contained the agricultural wealth of the kingdom, which stretched 1000km along the coast from near Guayaquil to Paramonga. Huanchaco is a fishing village and it is worth seeing the narrow pointed fishing rafts, known as Caballitos (little horses), made of Totora reeds and used in many places along the Peruvian coast.
