Trujillo, in northwestern Peru, is the capital of the La Libertad Region. The city is located on the banks of the Moche River, near its mouth at the Pacific Ocean, in a valley of great cultural hegemony with Moche and Chimu cultures at its respective time.

Trujillo was twice designated as the capital of the country &  the "Capital of the everlasting Spring". Trujillo is close to two major archeological sites of pre-Columbian monuments: Chan Chan, the largest adobe city in the ancient world, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986; and the temples of the Sun (the largest adobe pyramid in Peru) and Moon.

The city centre contains many examples of colonial and religious architecture incorporating distinctive wrought ironwork. It includes residential areas, a central business district and industrial supply distribution to the various districts. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Trujillo has its seat here. Catholicism still dominates and 10 colonial churches remain inside España avenue, with those of Huaman, Huanchaco and Moche within 15 kilometres of Trujillo's centre.

The two Russian scientists Victoria Popova, Dr. Sc., Ph.D., and Lidia Andrianova Ph.D.  whom predicted a huge earthquake for yesterday September 21st have now confirmed it for today September 22nd, 2012.

The two scientists were right about the catastrophe.
