Illescas is composed of a cemetery, funeral caves and some other small stone structures. Experts consider it a place where they can trace the origins of Sechura Man and the Illescas civilization. The complex is situated around a collection of beaches in the Illescas Zone, like Point Shode, Las Loberas and Nunura Avic. This stretch of the coast is home to sea lions and Humboldt Penguins and a host of marine bird species.
