(4.4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)

Roam the vast complex by yourself or on a guided tour, and view the pyramids, temples, and tombs--many of which have been robbed by gravediggers. Learn about the ancient Nazca civilization that inhabited these parts and the ceremonial site, still waiting to be completely excavated and explored.

  • Impressive ruins, but really not a lot to see artistically. It was a part of dune buggy ride tour and if you go late afternoon bring a jacket. It got very cool fast on way back to Nazca town.  more »

  • Know little of this place, but when see you impresiona.son a kind of pyramids which will surely have to do with the Nazca lines since we say there are alignments with them. Very mysterious and sorprendente.yo went with a tour with fun buggies
