Nasca Things to See and Do

follow us

Although Nazca is probably best known for the Nazca Lines, the town has several activities that will interest visitors. Museo Didáctico Antonini offers deeper insight into the ancient culture that built the lines and the Maria Reiche Planetarium explores their astronomical significance.Within walking distance of the city are the Inca ruins of Paredones and the stunning, seashell-like aqueducts of Cantayo. Around Nasca, travelers will find more ruins and nature reserves, and the gigantic Cerro Blanco dune, perfect for sandboarding.

Note that you can buy a one-day circuito municipal ticket which covers all three of the Aqueducts, Paredones and El Tellar and can be purchased at any of the sites (adults $3.75, children $1).
