If you have a taste for fairy tales as well some faith in the eclectic medicines of the druids and witch doctors plus if you happen to be anywhere near the city of Chiclayo, Peru, make sure that you don’t miss a visit to the Mercado Modelo.
Covering several blocks, the market offers many things of interest to tourists. However, the standout among them is surely the Mercado do Brujos, translated the ‘witch doctors’ market’. The grave-faced ‘brujos’ have everything in their possession to make for you that potent and infallibly efficient brew—we’re talking snake skins, amulets, whale bones, all manners of aromatic herbs, hallucinogenic cacti and what not!
However, if you’re serious about the thing, make sure to go with a reliable recommendation. After all, you don’t want to fall in the grips of a fake shaman.Places nearby:
