A center of administrative control between the coast and the highlands built with signature Inca planning and architectural techniques, during the imperial expansion imposed by the Inca ruler Pachacutec. Built in the rocky folds of the peak “The Heights of Nazca,” the city presents an East-West orientation, and faces the North. The complex contains seven sectors, the best preserved and most important being sectors 4, 5 and 7, each with a path distinguishing areas for visitors from those set aside for conservation.
