Sechin Bajo is not a big place but, being from at least 2nd or 3rd millenia BC, it is a must place to see. It exhibits some of the ancient ruins and well preserved carvings. The Sechin civilization was very religious, and this can be...More

The site is well worth visiting and provides a valuable insight into the development of a riparian civilisation. Go, experience, imagine and speculate. History in the raw.

We visited October 30 after spending the night in Casma, as a stopover during our drive up the coast. It's an arid dusty place without many customers. Beside us, there was a group of school children. Our guide teaches English at a local school. He...More

All of these reviews are actually talking about Cerro Sechin, not Sechin Bajo. Sechin Bajo is an interesting site archaeologically, but not much to visit. Cerro Sechin is one of the great archaeological monuments of Peru. This is where you find the extraordinary carved figures...More
