Camana was founded as a Spanish villa in November 1539 by Francisco Pizarro under the name of Villa Hermosa de Camana, with the purpose of establishing a urban center that served as nexus between the City of the Kings (Lima) and Cusco. However, the Villa Hermosa was moved to Arequipa when there were climate complications in the territory of Camana, reason why it’s said that Arequipa was founded. It was in 1839, in the republic period, that Villa de Camana was raised to the category of city.
At the current territory of Nazca flowered on the 1st century A.D. the Nazca culture. The researches and exploration of places and remains left by this culture indicate that this would be a direct continuation of the Paracas culture. Unlike the Paracas, who developed until perfection the textile art, the Nazca were the masters of pottery, standing out also for the hydraulic engineering present in the aqueduct construction (which is still used nowadays) and the impressive geoglyphs, which are known as the Nazca Lines. Between 700 and 900 A.D. took place the decadence of the Nazca culture, due to natural reasons. In 1901, the German archaeolologist Max Uhle discovered the potter legacy of the Nazca, which dates from 200, 500 and 700 D.C. Subsequently, in 1939, the American Paul Kosok would discover, without plnanning it, the Nazca Lines, while he was overflying the desert where they are.
