The news of his discovery went around the world because of its archaeologicssal significance and the magnificence and quantity of objects found.

The Huaca de la Lunato relate image in the multimedia gallery is a monumental grouping found on the lower part of the west slope of Cerro Blanco, 3 miles from the town of Trujillo. lt extends for approximately 315 yards north-south by 210 yards zoom imagen east-west.

Its three imposing platforms of adobe and brick, situated in front of the Huaca del Sol, are joined by four squares placed at different levels. One of them includes an outcropping of rock which doubtless had some ceremonial significance.

Both the platforms and the squares are bounded by very thick, tall adobe walls.
