Nazca Lines

The mystery of the Nazca lines is a legacy of the Nazca civilization south of Lima and has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The lines are drawn in the desert between the city of Ica and Nazca and have shapes of huge figures of animals, birds and gods.

It is estimated that this culture developed between the years 100 a.c. until 600 a.c.

It is not known how they were drawn or what they mean and can only be seen in its magnitude by flying over the area in small planes.

They were discovered by chance from an aircraft in 1927 and in the late 1980s new lines were discovered.
