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.

This is a few hours worth spending (drive time and tour time combined). Get a private taxi driver from hotel and go. Do not book a tour on a bus full of tourists.

When in Nazca they recommended me to do this visit and I have to say, it was a great recommendation, it is the first time I have seen real mummies outside Egypt and they have been preserved for over 1500 years in the dry Peruvian...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
