Chan Chan Peru - A World Heritage Site

Latin America

Chan Chan,

America's largest and probably the world's largest mud brick settlement, called Chan Chan, is located 5km west of Trujillo.

The Chan Chan site was home to the Chimu culture from the 12th to 15th century before they were conquered by the Inca.

The city of Chan Chan (Peru) comprises ten citadels which in its prime would have had a larger population than London at the same time.

Chan Chan is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
