Reception and transfer to hotel. Afternoon guided city tour, visiting the Parque Principal; the twin-domed neoclassical Cathedral, which dates back to 1869; and a stroll through the Paseo de las Musas, a beautifully manicured park decorated with neoclassical statues of mythological figures.
The afternoon tour concludes with a shopping jaunt through the Mercado Modelo, renowned for its shaman section where vendors hawk exotic spices, dried herbs, elixirs and potions for shamans and faith healers in small stalls lined with shelves of bottled snake skins, claws and eviscerated frogs.
Continue to the town of Lambayeque to visit the Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum, where many of the Lord of Sipan riches are displayed. After lunch, visit the 26 pre-Columbian pyramids of Tucume.
It was here that Norwegian explorer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl discovered burial sites, textiles, and depictions of reed boats from 1988-94, proving that the ancient people of Tucume were experienced sea voyagers and traders. (B/L)
