The El Brujo Archaeological Complex, just north of Trujillo, La Libertad Province, Peru, is an ancient monument of the Moche culture. It includes Huaca Prieta (from preceramic times and later extended by the Cupisnique culture) and nearby colonial remains (Salinar, Moche, Lambayeque, Chimú).
Huaca El Brujo (or Cortada/Partida) and Huaca Cao Viejo (or Huaca Blanca) were built by the Moche between 0-600 A.D. Huaca Cao Viejo is famous for its polychrome reliefs and mural paintings, and the discovery of the Señora de Cao, the first known Governess in Peru. Both appeared in National Geographic in July 2004 and June 2006, the site officially opened to the public in May 2006 and a museum exhibit was proposed for 2007.
