Torre Mirador de Las Lines de Nasca, Nazca

2.7
#5 of 8 in Sightseeing in Nazca
Landmark Tourist Spot
Torre Mirador de Las Lines de Nasca provides views of a World Heritage Site featuring a series of ancient geoglyphs strewn across the desert. Hundreds of huge images of animals were created here by removing reddish pebbles to reveal whitish ground beneath; this work was likely performed by the Nazca culture centuries ago. Despite the passage of time, the windless conditions of the area preserve this precious artwork. Today, visitors can climb a watchtower or surrounding foothills to get a better glimpse of the images.
