English: The Paracas Candelabra, also called the Candelabra of the Andes, is a well-known prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru. Pottery found nearby has been radio carbon dated to 200 BCE, the time of the Paracas culture. The design is cut two feet into the soil, with stones possibly from a later date placed around it. The figure is 595 feet tall, large enough to be seen 12 miles at sea.
Español: El Candelabro, en la bahía de Paracas, es un geoglifo famoso, ubicado en Paracas, Ica. Sus grandes dimensiones y su diseño sobre la arena permiten distinguir una relación con las líneas y geoglifos de Nazca y de Pampas de Jumana. Su origen es aún un misterio.
