Dark sights in Nazca
- Sort by:
The most popular excursion from Nazca, the Chauchilla Cemetery , 30km south of Nazca, will satisfy any urges you have to see ancient bones, skulls and mummies. Dating back to the Nazca culture around AD 1000, the mummies were, until recently, scattered haphazardly across the desert, left by ransacking tomb-robbers. Now they are seen carefully rearranged inside a dozen or so tombs, though cloth fragments and pottery and bone shards still litter the ground outside the demarcated trail.
