Day 03: May 25, 2018 Ica - Paracas
After breakfast at the hotel, we will go to aerodrome of Ica to Overflight the Nazca Lines. We use small planes to see the Nazca Lines and they are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches 53 miles or more than 80 kilometers between the towns of Nazca and Palpa. They were created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and 700 AD. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, and lizards. The Nazca lines cannot be recognized as coherent figures except from the air. Since it is presumed the Nazca people could never have seen their work from this vantage point, there has been much speculation on the builders' abilities and motivations. German Maria Reiche spent 50 years studying and researching the area and she said that it was an astronomical calendar. Lunch at the Las Dunas Hotel.
Then visit the fields of “Hacienda Caravedo”, to learn more about the conduct of our vineyards of pisco grapes (by one of our agronomists), the tour continues through the America's oldest distillery (Est.1684).
