The ancient inhabitants of the first Casma built a small town in the mountains of Sechin and Mojeque within the valley of that same name, away from the current location of the settlement. It began as an important cultural center and a military stronghold during prehispanic times. Casma was occupied by the Chimú culture, an empire founded by a second wave of central american inmigrants which arrived at the peruvian shores. Afterwards the kaswas destroyed the first settlement, so it was rebuilt near the slopes of Sechín.
