The Paracas Candelabra (also called the Candelabra of the Andes) is a prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru. The design, which may date back as far as 200 BCE, is cut two feet (0.6 m) into the soil and has stones placed around it. The figure is 595 feet (181 m) tall — large enough to be seen 12 miles (19.3 km) at sea.
