Afternoon: Chan Chan Complex from Trujillo
Overview of the tour in Trujillo
Pick up from accommodation in Trujillo around 2pm. Then we will start our visit of the famous Huaca Arco Iris (Huaca Dragón) and the Huaca Esmeralda.
Afterwards, we get an insight to the site of Chan Chan in the official museum and also visit the Nickán Palace, the palace enclosure we enter a labyrinthine series of courtyards lined with clay friezes of fish and ocean birds, and walled in places with an open meshwork adobe building style believed to represent fishing nets. We visit inner patios, residences, administrative buildings, temples, platforms and storehouses, and a huge reservoir where "sunken gardens" may have produced specialized crops for the Chimu nobility.
