Thanks to their gigantic sizes and isolated location, they laid hidden to the human eyes.
It was not until the 1920S, when airlines pilots, flew over the zone and spotted various straight lines.
Shortly afterward, the news about these desert lines spread around the country.
In 1926 Archaeologist TORIBIO MEJIA XESSPE arrived in Nazca, following the pilot’s report.
After exploring the valley and observe some lines from the hills around Nazca, he thought they were Ancient Sacred Roads.
Unfortunately, the reports made by Mejia Xesspe did not attract the attention of the public in those years.
