Nazca Lines

One of the most baffling enigmas of archeology.

Duration:2 days

Nazca was the seat of a pre-Incaic civilisation highly advanced in both astronomy and ceramic art. Today enormous figures of animals, birds, insects and incredible geometric drawings etched into the desert sands, visible only from the air, remain as testimony to this remarkable culture.
