Itinerary

 

In almost 50 kilometers long and 15 wide, they are located the drawings and figures known as the "Nasca lines", considered by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site.The lines include up to four pampas: Palpa, Ingenio, Nasca and Socos, located between kilometers 419 and 465 of the Panamericana Sur highway.


The soil of this region, one of the driest in the world, is brown, according to Maria Reiche- and under a first layer is another yellow. That is why a footstep leaves a lasting white spot, which will be fixed forever. The figures are in a desert where the soil is not just sand but is covered with stones greenish color. Its huge size and accuracy of the workmanship suggest be compared by experts with the pyramids of Egypt.


Hundreds of straight lines that often exceed one kilometer long, large trapezoids, spirals, triangles and drawings of animals and people are spread in the desert. A hummingbird, a sperm whale, a spider or a monkey-of such dimensions that it is necessary to take a small plane to make an unusual observables- archaeological landscape.
