The biggest city of mud bricks of the world is located 30 minutes from Nasca: Cahuachi.

It counts with pyramids of  adobe (15 to 40 meters of altitude), platforms and places. There, people from different groups met during periods to celebrate ceremonial parties.

Cahuachi was abandoned between the centuries V and VI A.C. after been buried by a flood.

Near, we can find a place called Estaqueria, where it is conserved  trunks put over platforms of adobes that may have been used as solar observatory.
