While looking back at Peruvian history you’ll realise our ancestors have come a long way experimenting, improving their skills and expanding their knowledge as time passed by. The Nazca were influenced by other cultures as they also influenced the succeeding ones.
The Cantalloc Aqueducts are certainly the perfect example of the innovative technologies they managed to acquire throughout the expansion of their kingdom. Impressively, these hydraulic structures have withstood centuries of earthquakes and are still in use by local farmers.
A prevailing legacy left behind by one of the most mysterious civilizations of Peru. If you thought the Nazca culture was only responsible for the enormous geoglyphs at the Pampas de Jumana, well let us tell you that there’s so much more that you didn’t know about.
If you love archeology as much as we do, our team has prepared the perfect itinerary so you get to experience this outstanding engineering work from up close. Learn everything about it while you’re here.
The private tour will take you on an expedition through the Peruvian desert, where you’ll get to visit one of the most important archeological findings in the region. The Cantalloc Aqueducts are located a few kilometers away from the city of Nazca.
As we mentioned earlier, the aqueducts were built by the Nazca people. The so-called puquios are over 1,500 years old and are composed of 46 aqueducts where at least 32 of them are still functioning. Check this blog for more information about the Cantalloc Aqueducts.
Keep in mind that you can also combine this tour with the Nazca Lines Flight so you can experience both of the greatest findings in the Nazca pampas!
As you already know, the Cantalloc Aqueducts are located a few kilometers away from the main city. Nazca is situated about 7 hours from Lima, which is why we highly recommend making a few stops on the way there so you can experience the best in total comfort.

to later explore this mysterious place.
