CHAN CHAN Y HUANCHACO (4HRS)
Visit Chan Chan. The monumental zone still covers around six square kilometers from what has been estimated to be once twenty square kilometer. The Outstanding Universal Value of Chan Chan resides in the extensive, hierarchically planned remains of this huge city, including remnants of the industrial, agricultural and water management systems that sustained it. Chan Chan was once built by the Chimu culture (remnants from the Moche) between 900 AD until the Incaâ€™s arrived around 1470 AD. The most impressive structures on this site include, Palacio Nik-An with different nature, bird and fish motives on its walls.
After visiting the site of Chan Chan, we drive to the small fishing town of Huanchaco. Each morning the fishermen of this town take their â€œCaballitos de Totoraâ€ to enter the sea and go fishing. These Caballitos de Totora are small boats made of Totora reed according to a design from the Moche culture. Drawings of these boats have been found on ceramics of more than 1000 years old! Huanchaco is also a good place to buy handicrafts.
Finally, we go back to the harbor before the departure time of the boat
