In the afternoon we will transfer to the airport where we will take our airplanes to view the ancient drawings from the Nazca civilization. We will fly over the Nazca Lines which affords a spectacular view of ancient figures created in the desert by these early peoples. As of today there is much speculation to the reason as to how and why these figures were made. The flight lasts 90 minutes.

Each tower contained the remains of Colla nobility accompanied by their riches. The engineering involved in their construction is more complex than anything the Incas built.
