Trujillo Things to See and Do

follow us

As one of Peru's largest cities, Trujillo has a wide variety of activities within and surrounding the city to keep even the most stir-crazy tourist entertained.

In Trujillo, there is its Plaza de Armas, where you can see locals wander about this quaint park. Also within Trujillo are a couple of museums, including Museo de Juguete and Museo de Arqueología. The colonial mansions are also worth a visit, many have been maintained and give you a sense of what things were like here hundreds of years ago.

Outside of Trujillo there are many archaeological sites that are worth a visit. El Brujo and Chan Chan are, in particular, worthwhile sites.
