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.
Moyobamba is the oldest city in the Peruvian Amazonia. According to Garcilaso de la Vega, Tupac Yupanqui conquered the province in the name of the inca. Its foundation is attributed to spanish captain Don Juan Pérez de Guevara the 25th of July 1540 with the name Santiago de los Ocho Valles. Its name comes from the quechua Muyupampa, which means "circular plain", having been considered during the conquest as a base of operations for incursions to other areas.
Moyobamba is also known as the "City of Orchids", because it is possible to find over 3500 different species of Orchids in the outskirts of the city, and every year the ""Festival of Orchids"" is held at the end of October which is a celebration that gathers tourists from all over the world.
