One of the many well known wonders of Peru are the famous Nasca lines located on the Nasca plains in the southern part of Peru. The Nasca were one of many ancient cultures that reached great heights in this amazing country. The Nasca flourished from 200 BC to 700 AD and left behind not only a remarkable city with at least 17 temples, which are just being excavated, as well as a very advanced aqueduct system, but they also left these remarkable designs in the desert.
Most of them cannot be seen and appreciated unless you are flying over them in a plane, although a few can be discerned from the observation towers located in the area. On a recent excursion with friends visiting from the United States I had the opportunity to view these stunning works.→
