This area was all heavily damaged in the 2007 earthquake and the devastation is still apparent although some limited rehousing has taken place, helped by donations from the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez. Some 35 km north of Pisco, near Chincha Baja, is Tambo de Mora, the old port, with nearby archaeological sites at Huaca de Tambo de Mora, La Centinela, Chinchaycama and Huaca Alvarado. Chincha itself still has a thriving negro/criollo culture (for more details, see pages). It is a good place to sample locally produced wine and pisco. One of the best bodegas is the Naldo Navarro founded in 1897 and being totally reconstructed in 2008 (Pasaje Santa Rosa, Sunampe, 100 m west of the Panamericana, T056-271356, http://vinosnaldonavarro.com, free guided tours, including tasting) . Now run by the fourth generation of the Navarro family, the old cellars are being converted into a museum. Other bodegas also have guided tours and the third Saturday in September is national pisco day.
