Archeological Monument of Sipan
On the outskirts of the village Sipan, the most impressive and
rich pre-Hispanic burial in all of South America was discovered
in 1987. The monument, dating back to the 4th century A.D., consists
of two pyramidal adobe structures emerging amidst cane plantations.
Inside them, the funerary chamber of a Mochica ruler (called "Lord
of Sipan") was discovered, along with all his treasures intact.
Two other burial places were discovered next to the main tomb, which
belonged to a priest and to the "Ancient Lord of Sipan".
