Chan Chan is the largest pre-Colombian city in the Americas and is a very impressive sight as you come off the Panamericana from Trujillo. This ancient city used to be home to around 60,000 inhabitants and thousands of Incan structures of various sizes. The ruins that are left are a shadow of their former self, but still mightily impressive. If you are heading from the north of Peru then it’s a great stop on your route down to Lima.
