Chan Chan Peru Archaeology Tours

A Chan Chan archaeology tour is a must for any history enthusiast embarking on a trip to Peru. Located near Trujillo, Chan Chan was once the largest pre-Columbian city in Peru. In fact, it was the center of the Chimu kingdom, which reigned from 850 AD until the Incas conquered them in 1470. The Chan Chan capital has been well-preserved, with remarkable designs marked throughout the adobe city. Travelers enjoy visiting the ten walled citadels with ceremonial rooms, burial chambers, temples, reservoirs, and residences. In particular, visitors are intrigued by the adobe walls full of intricate designs of animals. High-quality ceramics were also found here, along with jewelry, tools, and textiles. A tour of Peru’s archaeological sites would not be complete without Chan Chan.
