The name of the city comes from Chidayep and Chiclayoc, words in mochica language which mean “green that hangs”. It was the place where the culture mochica was born in the period of 0-600 B.C. Its foundation took place in 1560, during the colonial period, as a rural house; this lasted until the republic period, when the city started to grow due to its commercial importance and privileged location. Today we can appreciate on the outskirts and museums the legacy of a large culture moche, which dominated the valley centuries before. Declared the “capital of the friendship” for its hospitality, charm and good disposition of the residents, Chiclayo is the place where every traveller who likes history, good food and beaches with a good climate can’t miss.
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.
