Ruin
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.

  • 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
