Trujillo was founded in 1534 by Diego de Almagro, under the name “Villa of Truxillo”. With the passing of time Trujillo would consolidate as one of the most important cities of the Peruvian viceroyalty, for being an administrative and commercial center, essential for the colonial system. During the independence period, Trujillo had a relevant role on Peru’s Independence, what gave the surname of “Ciudad Benemérita y Fidelísima a la Patria” (“Meritorious city and Faithful to the Homeland”). Besides that, it was the first city to break free from Spain. During the 19th century, and later that the Moche and Chicama valleys emerged as settlements of the sugar industry and the economy grew, new residents came to the city; mostly were european immigrants, what contributed to the development of a local esthetic, since the constructions took breathing from the neoclassical style.
It was the settlement city of different cultures as moche, wari, recuay, chimu and inca, in different historical periods. It’s believed that the name comes from the words “muchic, chin and pot”, that put together mean “closed port”. On the begining of the 20th century the district of Chimbote is created, later that the city had grown during the 19th century, due to the port and commercial activities. The already named Puerto Mayor reached the position of biggest production fishing port of the world on the middle of the 20th century.
