Interesting place to visit. Very important as a source of archaeology to the Nazca culture. It has been plundered by grave robbers so you will see some left human bones and pottery scattered around the place. There is a two-hour tour and it will cost...More
Wow, this is a type of places one must absolutely go! It's amazing how local climate preserved the mumies. And strolling around you can notice bones and cloth pieces of mumies that still lay here unearthed. Spooky and inspiring at the same time.
Mummies in tombs and you can walk freely among them. We had an amazing guide telling us about the Nazca people and their lives. Ar least what is known. It was horrific to realise that they have used child offerings to bury the highly positioned...More

This place is about a half hour drive from Nazca town, on a bumpy gravel road. Worth a visit, very interesting learning of the ancient Nazca culture and how they used to live, as well as their burial practices. The mummies are a bit creepy...More
