THE MILLENARIAN LINES OF NASCA

The Nazca lines are ancient geoglyphs that are found in the pampas of Jumana, in the desert of Nazca, between the populations of Nazca and Palpa, in the department of Ica (Peru). They were traced by the Nazca culture and are composed of several hundred figures ranging from simple designs such as lines to complex zoomorphic, phytomorphic and geometric figures that appear traced on the earth’s surface. Since 1994, the Unesco Committee has inscribed the lines and geoglyphs of Nazca and Pampas de Jumana as World Heritage.

Location

The city of Nazca is located within the department of Ica and this is located in the west central part of Peru, bordering with Lima, Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Arequipa.

History

Ica is the cradle of great civilizations such as the Nazca, Paracas and later the Chincha civilization that were later conquered by the Inca. The maximum expression of the Nazca culture were the marvelous Nazca lines.

At the time of the conquest, Ica was thought of as a suitable place to found the capital. However, Francisco Pizarro did not agree with the decision taken by Nicolás de Rivera, the man in charge of that mission. On January 30, 1866, Colonel Mariano Ignacio Prado, being Provisional Supreme Chief of the Republic, creates the Department of Ica.
