1. Huaca Rajada
Also known as Sipán, it was the place where the Lord of Sipan tomb was found by the Peruvian archeologist Walter Alva and his team back in 1987. It belonged to the Moche culture and later to the Lambayeque society.
The Site is located in Chiclayo, about 4 hours away from the city of Trujillo. The site is composed of two terraced pyramids connected by a complex ramp system. Huaca Rajada was severely destroyed by ‘huaqueros’ (tomb robbers) but luckily they never found the greatest secret within its interior.
