This drawing on the side of the hill seems like anyone could have made it at any point. It was just something to see on the way to the much more interesting Ballestas islands.

Viewed the Chandelier on the trip out to Ballestas Islands, and certainly impressive and more obvious, rather than climbing a tower like for the Nascar lines. It was good to have this as part of the Island tour, rather than just a standalone attraction. Leaves...More

Another piece of history that remains preserved You will see this as part of the Ballestas Island tour. Not as impressive as the Nazca lines, different in a way but a nice stop to make

We were able to see this sight by boat on the way to Ballestas Islands. It is said that this has been in place by the Nazcas over a thousand years ago.

Very disappointed with this one. For a start. It's not a chandeleer, as it's not hanging down. Also it looks like a 6 year old made it in the sand last week. Are we sure this is an original Nasca lines geoglyph

Its origins are shrouded in mystery. Where did it come from, who made it? The Nazca? Pirates? Apparently nobody knows. Impressive size. Scout the waters around it for dolphins.

This was a bonus viewing for us. Feel blessed to be able to see this wonderful sight. If in Paracas do the tour that includes this.

Really mysterious thing, a shame there aren't any more clues of its origin. It's cool to look at it once, but it's not something that you want to visit more.
