Visit the ancient archaeological Chauchilla Cemetery, located approximately 28 kilometers southeast of the city of Nazca, on the right bank of the valley of Las Trancas. Chauchilla Cemetery is a necropolis dating back more than 1,000 years and belongs to the period of the Ica-Chincha culture. For many years, this ancient necropolis has been plundered by grave robbers, who in their quest to find treasure almost completely destroyed the place, taking with them many valuable objects. Chauchilla profaners left half-naked bodies and a large number of destroyed graves in their wake.
To start the day, a transportation service will pick you up from your hotel and will transfer you to the Chauchilla Cemetery, located at about 30 kilometers from Nazca City, which is an important pre-Inca necropolis. Some sources relate it to the ancient Wari culture and others to the Nazca culture, which flourished in the area between the 2nd century BC and the 9th century AD. The cemetery shows vestiges of the ancient civilization, as well as fragments of pottery, textiles, and mummies. You will be transferred back to your hotel at the end of the tour.
