Paracas was an important pre-Columbian civilization of Ancient Peru, from the period called Formative Superior or Early Horizon, which developed in the peninsula of Paracas, province of Pisco, Ica region, between 700 a. C. and 200 d. C. It is partly contemporary with the Chavín culture that developed in northern Peru.
Much of the information on the paracas comes from the archaeological excavations undertaken at Cerro Colorado (“Paracas-Cavernas”) and at Warikayan (“Paracas-Necropolis”) by the Peruvian archaeologist Julio C. Tello and his disciple Toribio Mejía Xesspe at the 1920s
It is now known that what Tello called “Paracas-Necropolis” belongs to another cultural tradition, the so-called Topará culture, whose center was located further north, in the Chincha valley.
The Paracas practiced a high-quality textile store, in wool and cotton, as well as decorated ceramics and a very elaborate basketry. They also performed cranial trepanations, whose ends are still discussed.
The Paracas culture is the predecessor of the Nazca culture with which it has an evident cultural affinity; In fact, for many specialists, the final phase of Paracas is actually the initial phase of the Nazca culture.
The Time Machine contributes to ecology:
The time machine in Paracas contributes with History and culture in an absolutely fun way, Paracas is the cradle of the Nation and its history could not be left aside. Also within the exhibition, we will be able to appreciate important aspects of the Paracas National Reserve, which is absolutely linked to that culture and a large part of its remains are found within it.
We can do combo tours in which you can include the different activities we have, so a classic could be Islas Ballestas leaving the town in ATV or Go-Kart ATVs to get to the hill to fly Paragliding and then continue doing Tour of the Reserve in the ATVs or in the Go - Kart.
