    Chan Chan was constructed by the Chimu around c850, and was the imperial capital until was conquered by the Incas and later by the Spaniards. Unless other Peruvian archaelogical sites it´s very close to the ocean.

    If you´re not in an organized tour you can reach the main entrance of Chan Chan by local buses called Combis. It´s very easy to catch one of this buses, they leave Trujillo (España and ejercito streets) every 15 minutes.
