The Nazca lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert that stretches over more than 80 km and have been created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and AD 700. There are hundreds of stylised figures (hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks or orcas, lamas, and lizards). The Nazca have also built an impressive system of underground aqueducts still in function today.
