We will visit one by one among the tombs and we will find family tombs as well as small tombs of couples,
The interesting thing about these mummies is the human braids since they are very long and hang from the walls, along the path, we will also find corpses of babies in small circular tom.
The mummies in the Chauchilla cemetery are in a good state of preservation despite their age and in many of them you can still see remains of hair and even some skin, also remains of offerings and there are even some animals mummified. Conservation has been possible largely thanks to the very arid and dry climate of the Nazca desert.
Then we will visit a Ceramic Workshop, where a master craftsman will give us a good explanation about Nazca ceramics, to understand more about the iconography and also about how the ancient inhabitants of Nazca made such colorful and beautiful ceramics..
