This archaeological monument is considered a religious center of the Moche culture. This expansive citadel was built on a large rocky elevated platform by the occupants of the Empeña Valley, during the Formative Period. It includes a stone building with two terraced platforms, united by a central staircase. But the main attractions are three staggered pyramids. The most important of these is composed of five platforms, joined by zigzag ramps.surrounded
