At its heart is the grand Plaza de Armas (Parade Square), surrounded by pastel-colored buildings and the impressive yellow Trujillo Cathedral. Stroll along Francisco Pizarro Street to Plazuela El Recreo. Here, you’ll find a historic gate and fragments of the original city wall. The wall stood from the 17th to 19th centuries and served to protect the city from pirate attacks. Don’t miss Casa Ganoza Chopitea, one of Trujillo’s best-preserved colonial mansions.

Chan Chan is also home to some of South America’s most significant pyramids, including Huaca del Arco Iris and Huaca del Sol.
