A Private Tour with a Local Guide

"El Brujo" Archeological Complex is one of the most famous shamanic ceremonial centers in northern Peru. Even today the shamans gather in this place to practice their ceremonies.
Moche civilization inhabited this site from the 1st to the 8th century and in this temples we will see wonderful painted relieves with the Moche Iconography.
Be amazed by the museum of Cao, which houses the mummy of a woman ruler, discovered in 2006, so well preserved that still today we can see her tattoos.
