Nazca Lines.- believed to be drawn by the Nazca culture. They are composed of several hundred figures cover designs as simple as lines to complex zoomorphic, and geometric fitomorfas are drawn in the earth's surface. The amazing thing is that these lines can only be seen in its entirety from the air, flying over the desert, which has raised major questions about the intentions and skills of their builders.

The Cementery of Chauchilla For many years this pre Inca place was looted by treasure hunters, who ransacked the place taking away all the treasures the mummies kept in their tombs for centuries. Presnetly in addition to skulls and bones, you also can see several century old tombs, with mummies, ceramic fragments and others remains scattered on the desert surface.

The Paracas National Reserve is the only reserve protecting a section of Peruvian coastline and cold-water ocean consisting of 335000 hectares. It includes many salt flats, beautiful beaches, rocky points, and some of the richest ocean waters on earth. Seals and sea lions, Humboldt penguins, dolphins, sea otters and over two hundred species of seabirds are an amazing experience to enjoy. The reserve also contains considerable remains of the Paracas culture which inhabited the Chincha, Pisco and Ica valleys from 600 BC to the first centuries AD.
Probably most famous for the The Candelabro (an enigmatic, candelabro shaped etching in the sand on a hill) and The Cathedral (a natural formation carved from the sea cliff by wind and waves) that has partly crumbled after the earthquake of 2008 but still provides a mesmorizing beauty with the unique colours of Paracas coastline.
