The Nazca Lines (Nasca Lines), are a set
of zoomorphic, phytomorphic and geometric figures (lines, triangles,
trapezoids, circles, spirals, birds, a spider, a monkey, flowers) that
appear engraved in the surface of the Nazca desert, a high arid plateau that
stretches 37 miles between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on a large flat area
of southern Peru. The Nazca Lines are one of the mysteries of the ancient
world. They are the most outstanding group of geoglyphs (drawings on the
ground) in the world.
