Ica was founded by the Spanish in 1563. Situated 50 meters high above the sea level, it escapes the clouds from the coastline. All year long with a blue sky and sunny weather, the city is a flowery oasis, thanks to the river that crosses the valley, the Inca’s canal and the modern irrigation that has been developed. The city has a prosperous industry of wine and Pisco, colonial churches and an excellent museum.
Iles Ballestas
The Ballestas Islands are a group of small islands near the town of Paracas located 300km southern from Lima. These islands are accessible from the resort town of Paracas by tour boat. Thanks to its great number of fishes in its cold water, the Ballestas Islands constitute a real ornithological reserve where various species of sea-birds and sea lions live together. We count 4.000 sea lions, 180 species of fish and 10 species of dolphins.

The Nazca lines… just the name leads us to a mystery that stays unresolved. The famous lines, that are known worldwide, did not find a complete explanation about its existence. An astronomical calendar? Maybe. But what was the goal of the drawings and how was it drawn? Discovering the enigmatic place, we make a real travel through the time. We will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Maria Reich. This German woman dedicated her life to the study of the lines and drawings and helped that it became World Heritage Site, recognized by the UNESCO.
