Ruins of Chan Chan

Chan Chan (the name means Sun Sun), and I´m not surprised, because the day I visited there was an excruciating heat. It is the biggest adobe in Latin America and the second in the world, constructed by the Chimu 5km from Trujillo. It was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 1986 and the city is formed by 9 walled cities or small towns. The whole kingdom was the capital of the Chimu culture Chimor and is an amazing place to visit .

largest adobe city in the world

It's an impressive citadel and considered the largest adobe city in the world. Of all the towns, it's the only one that has been rebuilt and enhanced. The number of corridors and mazes are interesting, as well as the two interior spaces and the courtroom.
