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.

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!

Loved this site. As ex-farmers, systems to move water are always fascinating for us. The work to design and build this system must have been incredible

We have read a lot about these aqueducts, but didn't have time to visit. Nevertheless, the Aero Palcazu pilot who took us to Nasca an Palpa lines also gave us this great view. We'd love to go if only we would have enough time.

These mysterious series of spiral wells are an integral part of a system of underground aqueducts that brings clean water from the mountains to irrigate desert agriculture. It is an amazing sight and technological achievement and fascinating to see.

These aqueducts are still working. Very ingenious. The spirals “breathers” are amazing to keep the water flowing. You can walk by the spirals and get very close to the water and even drink it because it’s very pure. It’s special to wonder how this was...More

It is great to see these aqueducts from up close. The fact that they are still in use testifies to the robustness of this system that resisted earthquakes. The design with strong wood overlaying the waterways, with the circles and spirals of stones on top,...More
