The Mysterious Nazca Lines

Description

The Mysterious Nazca Lines The Nazca people left behind one of the most astonishing legacies of the old cultures of Peru - the Nazca Lines. An elevated plateau called the Nazca Pampa is covered by these mysterious markings. From the air, we can marvel at a multitude of long straight lines, geometric shapes and outlines of animals and birds that have been marked into the dry, stony ground. Most markings were made by removing the top layer of dark stones from the ground. The longest straight lines run for several kilometres and most of the animal drawings are around 100 - 200 meters across. Why these designs were made is an enduring mystery, particularly since they can only be seen properly from the air.
