Túcume Archaeological Site

Túcume Archaeological Site is located on Peru’s arid north coast and stretches across 220 hectares. The ancient settlement was built entirely of mud-brick by the Lambayeque (also known as Sican) culture in the beginning of the tenth century. The site was conquered by the Chimú in the fourteenth century and became part of the Inca Empire in the fifteenth century.
