Nazca Lines Viewing Tower Tour departing from the city of Nasca
Nazca Lines Viewing Tower Tour departing from the city of Nazca
The Nazca Lines are one of the world’s greatest archaeological mysteries. The lines consist of patterns and pictures etched in the ground, crisscrossing a wide area of flat desert.
The Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches 53 miles or more than 80 kilometers between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana in Peru. They are believed to have been created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and AD 600. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fishes, whales, llamas and lizards.
Some lines measure up to 10 km (7.5 miles) in length, and yet remain perfectly straight.
