The Nazca Lines are famous around the world and to this day are much cause for debate amongst scholars, scientists, travellers and conspiracy theorists.
The fact is though we still dont know for sure how or why these geoglyphs were etched into the desert landscape near the town of Nazca.
There are in fact over 300 figures although usually about 10 or 12 are given the most attention such as the Hummingbird, the Monkey, the condor and the human (which is strangely alien looking)
Being so large they are best seen from the air and without a doubt taking a flight tour to see them is by far the best way. There is a viewing tower but what you see it very limited.
Adding the mystery in the area is the fact that there have been several discoveries of skulls that are elongated in shape. Although it is known that ancient civilisations in the area practiced binding of heads of children to change their shape some believe there is something else about some of the skulls that have been found. Regardless of their origin we can still wonder why they would do this in the first place? Is it in homage to a past visit from a different race?
