60 kilometres north of Trujillo you will find the pre-Inca archaeological site of El Brujo, a series of pyramids and tombs dating back to the Moche era and of key spiritual importance in their time. Highlights of a tour to the complex include the intricate wall painting of the Cao Viejo temple depicting animals, warfare and sacrifice rituals. The Cao Viejo temple also houses the original burial tomb of the tattooed Moche mummy known as The Lady of Cao, whose remains can be seen in the nearby museum, along with an impressive range of artefacts that were found alongside her.
