Chan Chan

Chan Chan is the world’s largest adobe city—and in the 1400s, was the largest city in the Americas, with countless temples, squares, dwellings, treasuries and storehouses. For all its grandeur, however, the site is as remarkable for its small details: the diamond shapes that punctuate so many of the walls, the abstract animal and human motifs that make up the friezes, and the exposed adobe brick peeking through its mud casing.
