  • On the way, you will stop at the Paracas peninsula to see the enigmatic figure of the Candelabro, a stunning design drawn on the side of a hill in the Peninsula. Nobody knows for sure who did it or why, although there are many hypotheses regarding its origin. Some believe it is related to the Nazca Lines, but as of yet, no evidence has been found to support these claims.
