Torre Mirador de Las Lines de Nasca, Nazca

2.8
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.

    On the Panamericana, a few kilometres before reaching the town and at the airport for the flight, we cross this tower that with few soles makes you taste a couple lines (hands and tree). For little expense worth it. Curious detail: a few dozen meters there is the figure of lizard which is bisected by the road. When it was built, in 1939, they had not yet noticed the presence of figures!

    An alternative is excellent if you are afraid of heights... are close to the city and is easily accessible.

    the first mirador is close to town and allows the viewing of three figures at a trifling cost going up on an iron structure (there are also public toilets and some stand), the second is after the Museum of Marie and allows the viewing of other designs (such as the candelabrum of Paracas are sula Hill). There is also here a tiny Museum that will show you how they were less visible these lines at the time of their discovery. The third is a little further away.
