You can see these aqueducts from the air at the end of your Nazca Lines flight but take the time to see them up close. They are engineering marvels and still carry water after hundreds of years.

Great visit

This is a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Guided tours are available or you can just wander the site as it's not very big. The ingenuity of the aquaducts is amazing and definitely worth a visit.

Interesting but what exactly is it?
Jan 2020 • Solo
The site itself is cool and make you wonder how this was build and how exactly it was used. But that's the part you will miss. There is no explanation signs, no one to tell you a short introduction. Bit of missed opportunity.

This place has joint ticket with three other nazca attractions: El Telar, Los Paredones and one more aqueduct. Price in total is 10S (bit over $3).

Fantastic experience
Oct 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I took the 45 minute over the Nasca Lines and the Aqueducts. We only paid an extra $10 to see the aqueducts which apparently adds 10 minutes to your flight time, so we thought why not.
The aqueducts are really interesting to see after the Lines and I’m glad we did them. They serve as an engineering wonder of the historical times in Peru and it was great to see them from above!

A water channel that passed under these pipelines, come from the mountains of the Andes, something incredible to obtain water.

These wells dug by Peruvians to supply their crops with water still have water today. Farming surrounds these wells and tunnels. Just one of the amazing sites around Nazca.

Like a spring

An engineering work that can not be repeated today. Accessible and easy to maintain today, Nazca takes advantage of those who have had the intelligence to create this engineering jewel.
Cantalloc Aqueduct and the Aqueduct is part of this unbelievable water system. We visited both and like I said about The Aqueduct, this is a must see place.

Mutiple old aquaducts and pits. ~ 30min drive from Nazca. Also birds surrounding the aquaducts as the water creates a good environment for mosquitos, be sure to use protection!
