Interesting shape cut into the side of the peninsular. Our guide provided several “theories” as to the purpose...you can decide for yourself should you visit the area, as did Eric Von Danikeb when he visited many years ago!

Pretty cool to see this from the boat. Much more impressive than the Nazca lines visible from the viewing tower on our quick PeruHop bus stop.

Saw from a power boat en route to the Ballestas Islands. Makes a person wonder about ancient civilizations. Said to be somewhat like the Nazca Lines. Captivating.

You get a brilliant view of the Candelabro on boat tours to the Ballestas Islands. All the boats stop here for a photo stop and guides will tell you all the theories about who drew it. Facts are it dates to around 200 BC and...More
