Paracas & Nazca Lines


One of Peru’s most amazing, historical, and cultural phenomena are the Nazca Lines. A series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, they are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and are believed to have been created between 500 BC and 500 AD. A small port town, Paracas is the gateway to discover the Nazca Lines and has become one of the major beach resort towns of Peru.
