Local authorities are planning to build a site museum in the Ventarron archeological complex located in the district of Pomalca, Chiclayo, as a way to attract tourists to this religious sanctuary that is considered to be the cradle of northern Peru civilization.

000114516MNaylamp-Lambayeque project director Celso Sialer said specialists are preparing a technical file for the construction of this site museum.

“The construction process is expected to begin this year in collaboration with international organizations interested in investing in the complex, which will help show people in this country and around the world how magnificent our ancestors were,” Sialer highlighted.

Ventarron hosts remains of fabulous architecture that may have marked the beginning of this civilization in northern Lambayeque.

According to Sialer, the archaeological site contains the oldest example of a painted mural in the Americas dating from 4,000 years ago.
