Nazca Travel Guide

The city of Nazca

The city of Nazca is a friendly town on Peru Southern Coast. It's very famous for the so-called Nazca Lines, a mix of long lines, geometrical figures, and giant drawings in the desert sand.

The Nazca culture is not believed to have been capable of manned flight. Normally the question remains as to how they crafted the drawings, what technology they used and what purpose the lines served.

Nazca lies on the arid flats, inland from the coast, along the Pan-American Highway. There are several sights and activities to take advantage of in and around Nazca. The Museo Didattico Antonini offers information on the Nazca culture and local sites, particularly Cahuachi. The nearby Cemetery of Chauchilla contains Nazca remains and mummies.
