Breakfast at the hotel. Early in the morning, we will leave towards the village of Pitipo to visit the Museum of the Lord of Sicán where the fabulous pieces found in the Huaca Batan Grande (located in the carob trees forest of the Sechura desert) are kept.
The permanent exhibition focuses on all aspects of Sican society and culture. All archaeological objects that are exposed come from scientific excavations, and the dioramas have been carefully crafted on the basis of available knowledge about pre-Columbian technologies. In this way, details of Sican population domestic life can be seen, as well as the processes of ceramics and metals construction. You will also see the recreation of two graves of nobility members, which contained gold ornaments and other valuable assets. Artifacts are displayed in their context of use or manufacture, and explanations of how archaeologists and their collaborators from other academic disciplines carry out investigations are included.
After the visit we will enjoy a typical lunch of the north of Peru. Next, we will be transferred to Lambayeque to visit another important museum, Royal Tombs of Sipan museum that is located 11Km from Chiclayo. The exhibition showcases the Lord together with his valuable jewels, some tombs of the Moche Warrios that accompanied him and important pieces made of gold with which he was buried. This is the result of the hard work of the Peruvian archaeologist Walter Alva.
The architecture of the museum is inspired in the late Mochica Sanctuaries with platforms and ramps combined. It is nowadays considered one of the best museums of South America.
Transfer to Chiclayo and overnight.
