  Mummies near Nazca
by mad4travel
 
 

There is a mummy cemetry close to Nazca where you can see over a dozen mummies where they were discovered.

There is also a small museum with some mummies and artifacts.

Due to the dry desert air the one in the musuem is quite well preserved.

You can also see bones (including skulls) strewn around the surface and bleached white by the sun.

A very arid and spooky place!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
