Nasca Lines, Nazca

4.2
Get a glimpse of one of the world's most enduringly mysterious sites at Nasca Lines, a series of massive geoglyphs etched into the desert's surface. The site features more than 800 lines, and hundreds of animal, plant, and geometric drawings, created more than 1,500 years ago. The largest etching, a condor, boasts a wingspan of 130 m (426 ft). Note the crispness of the lines, some of which extend almost perfectly straight over huge distances. Much debate remains over the purpose of the lines, whose vast size means that the images themselves only emerge when viewed from the air. Book a sightseeing flight with a local tour operator to appreciate the geoglyphs from a bird's-eye perspective. Make Nasca Lines a part of your Nazca vacation plans using our Nazca trip itinerary builder tool.
