Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines are one of the most recognisable images of Peru. The Nazca lines are huge drawings on the floor of the Nazca desert located to the south-west of Peru and cover an area of 520km between the two towns of Nazca and Palpa. The lines were rediscovered in 1939 and are believe to have been created between 200BC and AD700 by the native people of Nazca with various depictions of monkeys, birds, spiders, hummingbirds, lizards, fish and humans (which some believe to be an astronaut) all on the desert floor.
