Ica - Peru

IcaIca, an esoteric land, one de profound religious faith, sand dunes, valleys, and sun, is an agricultural zone where you see interspersed among the extensive desert area fields de cotton, butter beans, asparagus, citrus tree orchards, as well as vineyards. Some de the most important civilizations de ancient Peru established themselves here like the Paracas and the Nasca who left a legacy that has endured the passage de time and the violence de the sand and wind.


The Paracas National Reserve is a must stop; this State protected natural area is, among its beaches and staggeringly beautiful rock formations, the refuge to fur seals, otters, penguins, dolphins, and more than two hundred species de birds such as flamingos, waders, and guano birds. In the province de Nasca, a little more than one hundred kilometers from Ica, there are the Nasca Lines, one de the greatest archeological mysteries de the world. UNESCO placed this site on the World Cultural Heritage List in 1994. Formed by a series de lines and gigantic drawings traced upon the sands, the Nasca lines feature figures like a spider, a hummingbird, a monkey, etc. that can only be truly appreciated from flying above them.

You can also visit the vineyards de the department, where they produce excellent piscos and wines, the Huacachina Lake, a beautiful oasis situated among the sand dunes just a few minutes away from Ica, and Chincha, the valley which gave birth to the Afro-Peruvian music.
