About Ferreñafe

This northern city, that belongs to the province of Lambayeque, was founded under the name of Santa Lucia de Ferreñafe, by the Spanish captain Alonso de Osorio, on December the 13th 1550. It’s popularly known as the “Land of the Double Faith”, since the first settlers conserved the pagan practices and at the same time they practiced th...e catholic faith. However, it’s also known as “Double Faith” (“Fe” in Spanish) since its name starts with “fe” letters and finishes with the same syllable. In the beginning the city was settled close to Batan Grande, but between 1566 and 1578 the inhabitants moved to the current location; the first settlement is called Ferreñafe Viejo.
