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.
Rioja is the capital of the province of the same name, located in the San Martín region, west of Moyobamba. The region was previously occupied by the Uquihuas and the Chepen cultures, which were evangelized by the catholic missionaries which arrived at the region at the end of the XVIth century.
Rioja is part of the Alto Mayo Valley, a region known for its ecotourism attractions and places to take part in adventure sports, such as waterfalls, caves, and beautiful vistas, which have made the city be named as one of the 7 Wonders of Perú.
