The Sicán National Museum in Ferreñafe showcases the culture and art of the ancient Sicán civilization (750 – 1375 AD), including the famous Sicán gold mask.

The Paseo de las Musas is another charming pedestrian street lined with statues of muses from Greek mythology.

Paseo Yortuque

Enjoy the Paseo Yortuque, a pedestrian walkway in Chiclayo: Yortuque is a legendary figure in the Moche culture of Peru. He was a brave and powerful warrior who fought against evil forces and protected his people.

The pedestrian street is decorated with statues and artwork depicting figures such as the Ai-Apaec, the Moche god of decapitation. The artwork is a tribute to the rich cultural heritage of the Moche people.

Zaña: Memoria Afroperuana

Zaña, a former contender for the official capital of the Virreinato of Peru, is also worth admiring. For outdoor adventures, Pimentel is the perfect spot to admire the caballitos de totora, the precursors of modern surfing.
