One of the fascinating sights in Peru are the ancient Nasca lines in the southern desert. Called “geoglyphs”, they became known in the 1920s when commercial flights started between Lima and Arequipa. These enormous land “drawings” have intrigued scientists and travelers ever since.
We will have an opportunity to see the Nasca lines as an option on our August 2011 tour of Peru! Our departure dates should be available soon–check this site for information.
Below is a link to the National Geographic web article on the lines, and there is also a feature article in the March 2010 issue of National Geographic.
