i prefer to see the lines on mirador : you have 1 mirador 6km south before Palpa city, there is a brown road sign on the main road ( brown road sign : GEOGLIFOS DE PALPA ) , on the left side, when you are 6km south before Palpa city , in north direction ( mirador on the left ), it is better by mirador, because to see the Palpa lines by plane : i was very disapointed, because it is difficult to see the lines, by plane it is very quick, you have not the time to take pictures, the lines are small by plane, many times i saw nothing, i took pictures ( below the wing of the plane, and i only saw the lines at home on the pictures with zoom on the computer...), i did the one hour tour with both Nasca lines and Palpa lines, it is very expensive, but it is a good "souvenir", but i prefered to visit the 3 mirador, 1 mirador on Nasca : Arbol and Manos, and 2 mirador on Palpa ( Palpa north Nasca ), Reloj Solar (street ( calle 16 ) at the north exit of Palpa city )and Palpa Familly ( 6km before south Palpa city ), very easy to see from mirador and very cheap, and a bit difficult to find the 2 Palpa mirador, only 1 road sign near each Palpa mirador, you have to search a lot, good luck

Before we went to Peru, as we had decided we did not want to do the flight over the Nazca Lines, I really struggled to find where one could view the Palpa Lines and the Nazca Lines - which are in different places and formed by different peoples. It is important to understand that they are two different things to view.

So.........in order to see the Palpa Family, you need to visit the Mirador which is about five miles south of Palpa. If travelling from Lima, it is on the left down a short driveway off the Pan-American Highway. If travelling from Nazca, it is on the right. It is cheap to visit and certainly worth the stop. Not crowded. We were driving a rented car, so I am not sure how to access this site if you don't have your own transport but I am sure you could get a taxi from Palpa to take you and wait - half an hour there would probably be sufficient and taxis in Peru are cheap.

For the Nazca Lines, see my separate review.

These lines are right by the road (Panamericana Highway) so it’s well worth stopping by. You pay PEN 2 per person, walk up the metal structure, see the geoglyphs and are down and going again in less than 10 minutes. Spectacular if you imagine how people hundreds of years ago carved these figures.

Our tour guide drove us to the Palpa Lines, which is a 30-minute drive from Nazca. These lines pre-date those at Nazca, and it's very interesting to compare and contrast the designs! As with the tower for Nazca, there is a four-story tower you climb that costs two soles per person, but it's entirely worth it! These lines are easier to see than those at Nazca, and the history behind these lines is very interesting. A small museum at the base of the tower provides some information about the site.

From the tower, and even from the ground, one gets excellent views of the Palpa lines. I saw them from the plane too, and if you can spare the money I would do both. Once you're up in the sky for the Nasca lines, I think it's worth adding the older Palpa lines too. You'll get a better view from the land, but a land tour may cost as much as a flight (although you'll include more sites on a land tour).

We stopped at the Palpa lines on our way to the Nazca Lines. The geoglyphs are visible from the parking lot, or for s/2 per person you can climb the watch tower to see them from a higher perspective. The location is family owned and protected/maintained. They have a small building (Museum) on site with informative posters in both Spanish and English explaining the history of the images as well as their continued efforts to maintain them.
Great stop!
