This region is widely known for the Paracas culture ( BC and from our era) and the Nazca culture ( BC and from our era). These cultures are notorious for their textiles and their ceramics as well as the lines traced in the desert and the great Cahuachi ceremonial Center. The pre-Inca Nazca culture flourished in Peru’s river valleys of the Rio Grande and Ica, and are most famous for the Nazca Lines, ancient geoglyphs etched into the hard desert floor between BC and AD. (The Nazca culture was directly descended from the Paracas culture.) Scientific understanding of the lines of Nazca is still very limited.

Use the weather in Nazca to make the excursion to Chauchilla, where the mummies of the Nazca Civilization are located, you can observe the preservation through their skins, this due to the arid desert climate. Another suggestion is to know the aqueducts made by the inhabitants of Nazca around BC, which are still in operation until today. The Nazca created about 30 of the famous Nazca Geoglyphs, but the Paracas made more than before them. There are many characteristics of the Paracas that make them very curious; they made the finest textiles in the Americas, knew of and used the potters wheel, had elongated heads, red hair, likely light skin and possibly green eyes.

The bottom figure carries a knife used to behead his victim. They were found wrapped around mummified bodies in the great Paracas Necropolis in Peru.
