nazca lines

The Nazca Lines in southern Peru are a group of Pre-Columbian hieroglyphs etched into desert sands. Covering an area of nearly 1,000 sq. kilometers, there are about 300 different figures, including animals and plants. Composed of over 10,000 lines, some of which measure 30 meters wide and stretch more than 9 kilometers, the figures are most visible from the air or nearby hilltops.

NAZCA LINES tour

We invite you to join this unique adventure in southern Peru where we will enjoy the mistery of geoglyphs from the fifth century, known as The Nazca Lines, grooves of 20 cm depth in geometric patterns and distinct animal shapes. The first archeologist to study these lines was Max Uhle in 1901, followed by Toribio Mejía Xesspe in 1926 and Paul Kosok in 1939 (who officially show them to the world). Then, the german Maria Reiche, dedicated her life to study it from 1940 untill 1998 when it was declared Cultural Legacy for the Humanity by UNESCO in 1994.
