 The Lady of Cao is the first female ruler of pre-Columbian Peru to be discovered. She is believed to have governed in the Chicama valley, very close to the city of Trujillo, about 1700 years ago.

Through historical recreations, we will learn how the Moche society of the area was like and the importance of this mysterious tattooed mommy in her times.
