An ingenious system of stone aqueducts built by the people of Nasca in ancients times is still functioning and used by local farmers for irrigation.

This is honestly an incredible thing to see. The engineering behind these is mind blowing. It's also beautiful because not too many tourists go, so it is very peaceful. I highly recommend it!

One of the must see locations. One just keeps wondering how this people were able to build something like this 2000 years ago.... Simply amazing.

We went with a great guide and got so much information about the Nazca people and their culture. How the aquaducts work and their ingenious way of maintaining the tunnels. It is a fascinating place to visit and I haven't seen aquaducts like this before.

It was amazing to realize how the Nazca culture found out to have year round water thanks to the use of these aqueducts. It is possible to go underground but you have to arrange it before at the entrance. If you are a bit claustrophobic...More

We decided to visit here before driving back to Lima many people miss this but we enjoyed our walk round and fascinating to see the birds go for a drink and follow the path round as they flew back up worth a visit

Surprising these aqueducts provided water from the mountains year round for the surroundings of Nazca. But as a touristic attraction it is not very special. Make a combination with Cementerio Chauchilla in a half day tour.

The aqueduct is very well preserved and worth a visit, it's mostly combined with a buggy tour in the sanddunes.
