Visit to Cahuchilla necropolis

Plundered and left asunder by grave robbers, this ancient necropolis has been painstakingly pieced back together.
You will travel about 30 kilometers south of Nasca, about 40 minutes, to find one of the most spectacular cemeteries that one can visit.

Discovered in the 1920s, the remains and artifacts were spread across the area, picked over by nefarious pilferers. The burial ground has been restored to as close to its original state as possible, with the bones, bodies, heads, and artifacts either returned to tombs or showcased in displays.
