Chan Chan

Chan Chan, an archaeological site built in dry earth (adobe), is the largest adobe city in America and the second largest in the world.

Capital of the pre-Inca culture, the Chimu developed on the northern coast of Peru, a culture rich in fine goldsmithing, monumental architecture, pyramidal constructions, such as the 26 pyramids of Tucume, Chimu culture that flourished between 1000 to 1200 after JC.

In Chimu language, Chan Chan means “Shining Sun”.
