City Focus: Trujillo



In honor of their inaugural Pechakucha Night, we put this week's City Focus Capital of Culture of Peru, Trujillo! In addition to being home to the newestPKN series, their colonial-era center is also home to the grand Trujillo Cathedral, with its bright yellow facade, and the blue Casa Urquiaga, as well as the neoclassical Iturregui Palace with its Italian marble statues and courtyard. Just at the city's edge is the huge adobe complex of Chan Chan, the abandoned city that once served as the center of the ancient Chimu kingdom. Needless to say, the city's breathtaking beauty and rich cultural history will no doubt be a source of inspiration and creativity for their Vol. 1 presenters! Best of Luck, Trujillo and welcome to the PechaKucha Family!
