We will ride along sugarcane, corn- and ricefields to the Pomac Forest until we reach to the archeological complex of the Lambayeque Culture, "the Goldpyramid"
The Sanctuary was created on 01 June 2001 to conserve the cultural and scenic zone made up of the forest of Pómac and the archaeological complex of Sicán. It covers an area of 5,887.38 hectares at an altitude of between 80 and 300 masl. The site contains 36 pyramids from the pre-Inca culture of Sicán, and it was here that the tomb of the Lord of Sican was discovered: a lavish burial with beautiful artifacts made of gold and other metals. It is now possible to visit the archeological complex where the famous ceremonial knives known as Tumi were found.
Pómac forest is a habitat for many species typically found in dry woods, especially birds of many kinds, some of which are endemic. It is an important spot for bird-watchers. The Sanctuary also contains an ancient tree: an enormous carob with a bizarre shape, over 4 centuries old.
