After the Chicama Valley, Cascas was the second overnight stop out of Trujillo on the old Moyobamba Route in the 1800s. Because of a unique microclimate it has long been a fruit growing region. Today it's a center of grape-growing and wine-making. It is a pretty little town and is popular with weekend visitors from the big cities on the coast.
This old road went through town on this street. Here we are heading north (which takes us east towards the Amazon) from the plaza.
Today the pavement ends at the edge of town. Of course none of it was paved in the 1800s.
Here is the road heading south (towards the Pacific) from the Plaza.
