Get to Know the Temples of Huacas del Sol y la Luna
The two temples that make up the Huacas del Moche (Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna) were built by the pre-Inca Moche civilization between 100 and 800 AD.
Archaeologists believe that the sites were used for religious and ceremonial purposes, including cemeteries. The archaeological ruins make an interesting day trip from Trujillo (price 15-30 soles, entry 11 soles) with many interesting murals and artifacts.
