Project Description

Roughly 300 pre-Columbian figures made up of huge lines etched into the desert sand

The Nazca Lines are a group of mysteriously giant geoglyphs etched into desert sands. made by a Peruvian ancient civilization, called the Nazca.

The Lines cover an area of nearly 1,ooo square kilometers (620 square miles) and include about 300 different figures and shapes, like animals and plants composed of over 10,000 lines.

Some of these lines measure 30 meters wide and stretch more than 9 kilometers (5.59 miles). The figures that make up the Nazca Linea are most visible from the air or nearby hilltops.
