  • How do you get to the El Brujo Archaeological Complex in Trujillo from different routes?

Visits to the El Brujo Archaeological Complex form a part of the Moche Route, an archaeological circuit that transports us to a surprising ancient civilization. El Brujo is considered one of the greatest milestones along this route, since it is the place where the tomb and remains of the Lady of Cao were found, which are currently exhibited in the modern Site Museum.

The Lady of Cao was an important find for Peruvian archaeology, since it is believed that she held an important role in Moche society in the lower Chicama Valley. She also represents an unprecedented archaeological discovery in that she has helped deepen studies about one of the most important pre-Hispanic cultures to develop in Peru.

Today, the El Brujo Archaeological Complex is under the administration of the Weise Foundation, which, in addition to carrying out research in the area, also organizes different events that involve the community of the La Libertad region and attract Peruvian and international tourists and researchers.

Among the annual events organized by the Foundation is the International Archaeology Conference, during which the advances made in research at the complex are presented.
