  • Very good approach by the leaders of the optical Museum, about the designs found in many rocks to 40 Km from the city of Ica-Peru. Despite the great attempt to validate the hypothesis about the origin of the stones, I think there's still a litmus test and enlightening about the same. Praise also the excellent explanation in a Spanish very clear given by the Chairman of the Museum. /Dario da Silva Júnior-Campo Grande-MS-Brazil/

  • "Museum of engraved stones Iki"-a unique place where collected stones from andesite, which marked image of prehistoric animals, ancient maps of continents and scenes from the life of other representatives of mankind. Throughout his life, Dr. Cabrera tried to unravel this graphical language and based on the acquired knowledge, put forward some interesting hypotheses about the past of our planet and its inhabitants. Dr. Cabrera is a direct descendant of Conquistador Cabrera, created in the 16th century the town of Ica. I have great doubts as far as these stones are original, but forge 11000 stones cannot be private museum, before ride from Lima or Parakasa, it is better to agree in advance about the visit
