The city
of eternal spring

This city, blessed with fair weather and sunshine all year round was also once home to one of the most famous cultures of ancient Peru, the Moche culture, and in the area there are many, well-preserved architectural treasures to be found. This region was also home to the Lambayeque and Chimu cultures, the latter of which constructed the citadel of Chan Chan, A UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Famed for its grand architecture, Trujillo is also known for its majestic Peruvian Paso horses and their National Marinera Contest, and a number of other celebrations that make this city a destination not to be missed.


One of the country’s best-loved and most traditional cuisines is that of Northern Peru. It is a fusion of vegetables, seafood and the products of the generous valleys that run through it. Among the most popular regional dishes are the shambar soup, a blend of beans, Andean herbs and cured ham; the teóloga soup, a delicious chicken both, soaked bread, potatoes, milk and cheese. Not to mention the turkey pepián, an intensely flavored, slow-cooked stew; seco de cabrito, one of the finest, a cilantro and beer-rich goat stew; and finally, the Trujillo-style fish, a steamed whole fish in a red soup.

Enjoy the best dishes of the region in our restaurant Las Bovedas.
