Peru - El Candelabro

El Candelabro - also called the Candelabra of the Andes is the strange and unexplainable geoglyph on the north face of the Paracas Peninsula which is almost 600 feet in length. Theories abound as to what its purpose was. It is generally assumed that it was the Paracas people, an earlier civilization than the Inca, who made this figure as pottery found in the same area was radio carbon dated to 200 BC. But in the end, no one really knows who made this design and its exact purpose remains unexplainable.

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
