The archaeological site covers an area of approximately 20 square kilometers. The central zone is formed by a set of 10 walled enclosures and other solitary pyramids. The rest consists of numerous small poorly preserved structures, sidewalks, canals, walls and cemeteries.
Sadly much of Chan Chan was probably destroyed already after the Incas conquest of the city. This is in referral to that most old document after the Spanish conquest refer to it as a ruin. So the former size and wealth of Chan Chan remains hidden in the mystery of time.
