When touring Paracas National Park one of the scenic lookouts is La Catedral. With the loss of its arch due to a past earthquake it is nothing special. There are many birds nesting in the cliffs. On the day we visited it was very windy...More

Impressive rock formation, but not as cathedrally as before the earthquake in 2007 which collapsed the arc. Good views anyway.

Take the tour or the national reserve and enjoy some beautiful scenery, one of which is the cathedral. It is best on a clear day so that you can see into the distance.

The views from where we were are breathtaking. This is well worth a visit - usually through a tour of the Natural Reserve.

Great rock formation in the ocean, and coastline. Unfortunately the recent earthquake has destroyed part of the arch, however it is still a stunning site to explore. Follow my #30somethinggapyear on Instagram @DatLoongJourney.

This is one of my top favorite places in the world, and I have been to over 35 countries! The view from the new overlook will take your breath away. It is very windy there adding a greater sense of grandeur.

5 police shakedowns later, my son and I made it from the Nazca and Paracas desert back to Lima. Our strategies included dividing up the $100 dollars the Hilton gave us on credit (after the police stole all of our money earlier). We divided the...More
