Chan Chan was the ancient capital of the Chimu empire and is one of the most important pre-Inca archaeological sites in Peru. This crumbling imperial city, located in the Moche Valley about 5km from Trujillo, is the largest pre-Columbian city in the Americas and the largest adobe city in the world.


It was built around 1300AD and the city walls enclose an area of about 28 sq km comprising a maze of palaces, temples, thick defensive walls, streets, houses, gardens, a huge reservoir and canals. It is believed to have been home to as many as 60,000 inhabitants.


Chan Chan consisted of nine sectors known as Royal Compounds. Each was built be a succeeding king. Each compound included a platform mound where each king was buried together with his women and his treasures. The Chimu kingdom began around 1000AD. At its peak in the 15th century the empire stretched nearly 1000km along the northern coast of Peru from Lima to the Ecuadorian border. In 1471, after nearly a decade of resistance, the Chimu finally surrendered to the Incas. After the conquest by the Incas the city and its treasures remained pretty much intact, the Incas were far more interested in expanding their empire rather than accumulating riches. It wasn't until the Spanish arrived that the temples and palaces were ransacked and within a short period there was little left of the treasures.
