Nazca Lines

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

The Mysterious Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines can not be easily seen at ground level. It's not until you elevate that you can appreciate the size and scale of these drawings. There are thousands that include creatures like a spider, hummingbird, monkey, pelican and more. You'll also find drawings of plans and trees, triangles, spirals and wavy lines.

The lines date back from 200 BC and the earlier lines (which were created with piled up stones) date back to 500 BC.

Although the purpose for the lines is not fully know, one theory is that they were used as an engineering schematic that references underground waterways. This would have defiantly been beneficial for irrigating the dry desert land. Others believed that the lines are linked to the night sky and constellations. Whatever the purpose they are quite interesting and worth further study.
