Pomac Forest Historical Sanctuary

 

The Pomac Forest Historical Sanctuary is located in Batán Grande, 20 Km from Ferreñafe or 38 Km from Chiclayo. This dry forest is a refuge for carob trees, birds, and at the same time for Sican archeological remains. Here are twenty pre-Inca mounds or pyramids, called huacas, like Las Ventanas Huaca, Huaca Lucía, Huaca La Merced or Huaca Rodillona. The archeological discoveries have been surprising because of the quantity of gold objects found. The Sican Archeological Project located a tomb with valuable burial items composed of crowns, rings, masks, bracelets, necklaces, weapons, armor, and other objects of gold and semiprecious stones like turquoise, spondylus (red sea shell), lapis lazuli, and amber. The forest is full of varied flora of zapote (quararibea sp), guarango, and carob trees.
