Original motifs - Chan-Chán

At Trujillo there are several famous ruins: Chan-Chán, Rainbow Huaca, and the Huacas of Sun and Moon.
Chan-Chán was a city 15kms x 2kms built entirely of adobe - about 1100-1450 AD. These carvings are originals.
The walls have recently been sprayed with a chemical/cement substance to prevent further erosion
