[From the Original 1927 Catalog] Situated at 400 meters in the direction of the sea from the point where Trujillo-Huanchaco road enters Chan Chan. These interesting ruins are well preserved. This group is divided into two sections and each of these is subdivided into many others. The entire group is surrounded by an enormous rectangular wall. A modern road, now abandoned, which leads from the town of Huaman to Huanchaco cuts through it. The Tomb of Toledo is some 200 meters east-south-east of it.
