THE LINES

 

The Nazca Lines are a famous tourist attraction, known worldwide. They are located on the desert plains between Nazca and Pallpa. The lines form huge etchings of plants, animals and geometric figures, which can only be appreciated from above. There is a tower beside the Pan-American Highway from which some of the lines can be seen but in order to be able to see the whole area and to be able to distinguish the drawings clearly it is necessary to take one of the many flights over the lines. It is not conclusively known either when or why the lines were made (though they are prehispanic). There are many theories and it is worth visiting the museum on the outskirts of Nazca dedicated to the investigations of the famous German archeologist, Dr. Maria Reicha, who spent most of her life studying the lines.
