Geoglyph
The Nazca Desert in southern Peru is home to the ancient geoglyphs known as the Nazca Lines. There are hundreds of designs that range from simple lines and geometric shapes to animals such as birds, monkeys, fish and spiders. They are believed to be over 1500 years old and the extremely dry and windless climate has allowed them to endure. With some as large as 200 meters, a small airplane is the best way to view the mysterious figures.
