Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort, Paracas

Desert and Sea

Experiences

Golden dunes in an arid wonderland. Tranquil waters. Massive mysterious geoglyphs. That is what awaits you in the area around Pisco some 250 km south of Lima: an oasis of contrasts and contradicting landscapes and a refuge of myths and legends. There, you will also find the hotel Paracas. Paracas is the name of a seaside resort, a peninsula, a bay, a Pre-Incan culture, a natural reserve, and a strong wind that occasionally produces sand storms. It is also the name of a traditional hotel that was constructed as an oasis in the desert and is the perfect place to enjoy the marine life, culture, history, and adventure.

A Collection of Mysterious Pre-Columbian Geoglyphs

The Nazca Lines

In southern Peru, about 250 miles from Lima, exists an awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site: a sprawling coastal plain punctuated by massive, 2,000-year-old geoglyphs. Etched deep within the desert floor, these iconic motifs – appearing as straight lines, geometric figures and organic shapes – have been the subject of endless speculation.

The History of the Nazca Lines

A Storied Attraction Near Rio Grande de Nazca

First studied by Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejía Xesspe in 1926, it is believed that the majority of the Nazca Lines were created between 100 B.C. and A.D. 700. Withstanding the test of time, the lines were made by removing the top 12 to 15 inches of rust-colored rock along the Rio Grande de Nazca river basin.

Deeper Meaning and Symbolism in an Otherworldly Ancient Attraction

While many questions remain surrounding the purpose of the lines, it is believed they may have been used as part of a ritual, calling upon the gods for water.

Where an Enduring Landscape Provides a Transformative Experience

There are more than 800 straight lines, more than 300 geometric figures and a series of animals, among them a spider, a hummingbird, a whale and a lizard.

 

The Best Views of the Incredible Nazca Lines Are Taken In From Above

Viewing these remarkable geoglyphs in person is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With daily flights from Pisco Airport, we recommend seeing them from the air.
