Another view from Chan Chan, one of the biggest towns built in clay in the world. It was built many centuries ago using clay. It was surrounded by high walls and there were many separated areas used for habitation and religious purposes. Here we can see a palace decorated and a piece of the walls in the background. We can see animals from sea in the decoration too. This place is located near a beach.

Estou aqui pensando como deve se ter gastado tempo para se fazer isso tudo aí... Interessante o caminho da humanidade.

I heared about the place as my daughter recently return from a treep to SA and Peru too - a great view over the Clay town.
Good POV and sharp image.
