lima & nazca lines

To the Southeast of Peru’s trendy capital city of Lima are the mysterious Nazca Lines, formed centuries ago for reasons still unknown.

The only city in the world to have two restaurants named in the Top 10 Restaurants in the World, Lima’s restaurants range from traditional fare to creative fusions of different cooking styles. Its forbidding and desert-like coastline also holds its own treasures. Although famous around the world and the subject of countless documentaries, the exact reason for the creation of the Nazca Lines remains a mystery. Regardless of why they were made, the beautiful designs and measuring up to 300m across, are among the strangest and most unforgettable sights in the country.
