It’s one of the most ancient cities of Peru and of the Inca Empire. The first inhabitants were Huacaloma, Layzon, Cumbe Mayo and Otuzco who settled in Cajamarca about 3.000 years ago. The city was witness of ferocious battles between the Incas and the conquerors during the Peru Conquest and besides that, Cajamarca was where Francisco Pizarro captured Atahualpa, the last inca who refused to subject himself to the Christian faith and culture. It’s known as the most Spanish city of Peru.
The origin of Chepen goes back to the pre-Hispanic period, as most of the cities of the coast region. Its historic legacy is shared out among the cultures chavín, mochica, wari, chimú and even inca. Each one of those cultures dominated the territory sometime, being conquered or just disappearing. Most of the cultural influence in Chepen was by the mochica and chimu cultures. On the last years, before the Spanish invasion, the inca people conquered the region, subdueing the chimu, leaving their traces on the archaeological remains found. Chepén, San Pedro de Lloc and Jequetepeque are considered among the oldest places and historic places of the region Libertad. The legacy from its origins still remains in little peasant communities, descendants from the first natives that settled on the area.
