  • In the Palpa region there lines and geoglyphs in different places. Very well several huge anthropomorphic (human-like) figures on the hill can be seen from a high metal platform. You are located in Piedras Gordas, not far from the Pan-American Highway. We were in the late afternoon there and remained until dusk, it was beautiful to look at the figures on the mountain under a red/orange light. In this region there are over 1500 documented geoglyphs, the first emerged around 1000 years before the Nasca lines. In the village of Sacramento looking at a big level/platform at the time on a mountain with many other lines and geoglyphs. This platform is still not accessible to the public, but according to our guide, you can see a lot in Google Earth.
