Paracas – Ica – Nazca Tour
The Nazca Lines, discovered in 1927, is the most extraordinary legacy left by a culture that flourished in 300 BC. These lines are a series of complex designs up to 300 meters (984 feet) long which can only be seen in their true dimension at an altitude of at least 1500 feet.
The lines that decorate the desert floor like embroidery of the gods have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and the ancient mystery of the figures still waits to be unravelled.
