With an impressive pre-Inca underground aqueduct system keeping the region green and fertile to this day and daily visitors bussing into the small city daily to take a flight over the area’s celebrated Nazca Lines, this rapidly growing township is becoming a top tourist destination for visitors to Peru.
The marvelous geoglyphs of this coastal region are the main attraction for travelers in Peru seeking history with an air of mystery. Estimated to have been begun around 400 BC and possibly continued for another thousand years, these immense representations of animals, human figures and geometric shapes are spread across more than 500 square kilometers between the Nazca and Ingenious Rivers and make for spectacular viewing from small aircraft.
