There is the castle and nothing more (I´ve heard from). But it´s very nice and the view to the ocean is great.
AND(!): In Chancay you are already away from the grew sky of Lima.
Restaurant Maria is situated on the Pan-American Highway, first ones when travelling from Lima to the North. Because just on the seaside, the common food here is from sea: ceviche and mariscos.
Favorite Dish: Ceviche and mariscos.
Favorite thing: Here you can find everywhere old ceramic things, dishes, cups, bottles, music instruments and small statues, real or fake. Indeed, it does not matter so much when buying those things, are they real or not, because the price is only some soles.
Fondest memory: in the fountain of Chancay castle we found this "little" goldfish...already as big as "koi" fishes.Maybe it is....I don´t know much about these fishes, it neither has been explained there, but for goldfishes they have been really big!!
Ok, there´s this little village, but there also did exist a era of Chancay, a culture named Chancay. Here you got a typical "Chancay" mean a find out of this epoch.
The Chancay culture is placed in the time between 900 and 1400 AD, called "regional states period". At the same time the maybe more famous Chimu kingdom existed near Trujillo. The best collection of Chancay artefacts is at the Amano Museum in Lima.
