Hundreds are just lines or geometric marked on the earth’s surface. A plane gains altitude to enjoy the view over the desert and of course to appreciate the amazing lines. The largest figure measures more than 200 m. long. Major questions about the intentions and skills of theirs builders remain pending.
Near by the Pre Inca Cemetery of Chauchilla was looted by treasure hunters. Those who ransacked the place taking away all the treasures out of Peru: the mummies kept in their tombs for centuries. Nowadays, several century old tombs can be noticed along with mummies, ceramics fragments and some bones.
