Witness the unique process of burying the dead according to Nazca culture by getting access into the Chauchilla Cemetery. There are a number of family tombs which were constructed from mud and bricks to bury the dead of a particular family. As it has now become an important archaeological site, burying had been restricted here. Thus the skeletons which are there in the site are all above 700 years ago. You will notice that the dead are covered with embroidered cotton clothes and painted with resin for the mummification process. Still many dead bodies of the Chauchilla Cemetery have been found with hairs on their heads and soft skin-type tissue on their bodies.
