In prehistoric times the inhabitants of the Nasca region developed an underground infiltration galleries system to irrigate the valley portions lacking surface water. These galleries are built with cobblestone and flagstone roof and Huarango wood for kilometers below the surface.
We will pick you up at the time indicated at your respective hotels. After having reached this aqueduct you will witness the great ingenuity of the ancient inhabitants who struggled for survival by building underground channels in sinusoidal form to capture seepage water flowing down from the Andes to transport water to the surface filling in lakes or pools before being distributed to the fields.
Then you will visit the “Needles”, a place where you can appreciate the Nasca lines closer in the form of a large trapezoid. Here the guide will explain the reason of existence of these trapezoids on the side of the majestic Cerro Blanco (highest dune South America and holy place to worship the water and fertility).
Finally we arrive to the Inca administrative center. Archaeological studies found that is of Inca origin and was called Caxamarca. It was built for administrative purposes and to be the link between the coast and the mountains. It was the home of Inca representative in this part of the coast, inhabited by maidens, administrators and soldiers. End of service and return to your hotel.
