Paracas Candelabra

Paracas, Peru

A well-known geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru, the Paracas Candelabra has been captivating the imaginations of visitors and locals alike for centuries. Although the exact date of origin of the Paracas Candelabra is unknown, pottery found nearby has been radio carbon dated to 200 BCE. The design is cut two feet into the soil, with stones possibly from a later date placed around it. The figure is 595 feet tall, large enough to be seen 12 miles at sea. Explore this unique site by booking an aerial flight during your stay at Hotel Paracus, or make the short 30-minute drive on a guided tour.
