Ica – Nazca

Ica is a city in southern Peru. On its main square Plaza de Armas, the cathedral has a neoclassical façade. Damaged by a 2007 earthquake, the Lord of Luren Church once held an idol of Ica’s patron saint, now housed in a Carmelite convent. Ica Regional Museum shows ancient pottery. Southwest, Huacachina village is an oasis set amid sand dunes, like the huge Cerro Blanco. Its Huacachina Lagoon is ringed by palm trees.

Nazca is a city and system of valleys on the southern coast of Peru. It is also the name of the largest existing town in the Nazca Province. The name is derived from the Nazca culture, which flourished in the area between 100 BC and AD 800.
