What will we do?
San Jose is in the middle of the Ica desert, south of the department of Lima alongside the Southern Panamerican Highway. It contains one of mankind’s greatest enigmas: the Nasca lines, a group of geoglyphs representing animals, objects and plants measuring up to 300 metres long and covering an area of 1000 square metres.
Their true size cannot be appreciated from ground level; you can climb up to a viewing point or better still, take a flight over 15 of the classic figures, including the whale, compass, trapezoids, astronaut, monkey, dog, hummingbird, spider and condor. There are five flight options: some cover 13 and others 15 figures. Some packages also includes excursions to the towns of Pisco and Ica, all using Aerodiana (wwww.aerodiana.com.pe). That is the only way to appreciate the immensity, perfection, genius and skill of this culture. The best time to go is in the mid-morning or mid-afternoon.
In the 1970’s, LimaTours supported the work of Maria Reiche, the first researcher and custodian of the Nasca Lines. Since then, we have brought more visitors to this unique UNESCO World Heritage Site than any other tour company in Peru.
