Cahuachi, Nazca

(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Explore Cahuachi, an archeological site believed to be a ceremonial center of the mysterious Nazca culture. Discovered in 1922, the site contains numerous pyramids made out of adobe clay, thought to have served as platforms for various religious rituals, burials, and offerings. 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.
