THE MYSTERIOUS NAZCA LINES
Discover the misterious Nazca lines with an overflight
Nazca Peru would not make most Peru vacation itineraries if it were not for the mysterious Nazca Lines found here and declared “Archeological World Heritage Site” by UNESCO (1994). Chances are that you have seen aerial pictures of the Lines of Nazca, either on television or in a magazine, and if that is the case, then you have likely been intrigued by them. They are an unsolved mystery of the ancient world, and a must-see tourist attraction. The ancient lines can only be truly taken in, their forms discerned, from high in the air, leaving generations mystified as to how these precise works could´ve been completed long before the documented invention of human flight.
As the flight to the Nazca lines, just take around 40 minutes, you will have plenty of time to take some optional tours in the Nazca city, like visiting a pottery workshop, a pre-Inca cemetery containing ancient mummies or the Cantalloc aqueducts from Nazca civilization that are still in working order, and some of them are even still being used by farmers to irrigate the pampas (plains)
