In the Regional Museum of Ica you will find a very interesting collection of various artifacts, ranging from pre-Columbian exhibitions to exhibitions of the colonial period. But the “highlight” is undoubtedly the great collection of human mummies and other human remains. Such as the grotesquely elongated minds of the Paracas, which many scholars interpret as a deliberate deformation that separates the elite. Other skulls in turn show signs of surgery, for example, to release the repressed pressure.
A slightly different view of Ica is provided by furniture and paintings from the Spanish colonial era.
A museum of another kind awaits you in the “Museum of Stones engraved”, the legendary stones of Ica. These stones, decorated with ornamental engravings, supposedly were found around Ica in caves and streams, and present drawings of dinosaurs along with humans and advanced equipment such as telescopes. It is said that the Peruvian doctor Javier Cabrera collects around 15,000 of these stones since 1961, from the size of a fist to 80 cm in diameter. And now comes the interesting part: while some claim that the stones are tens of thousands of years old and can even come from aliens, the experts and archaeologists are pretty sure: it is a fact, certainly very well done, false. If you want to enjoy the mystical atmosphere of the area thanks to the Nazca lines, then a visit to the museum is definitely a must.
Otherwise, Ica is known for its numerous wineries and cellars where you can enjoy pisco and white wine. Most of the wineries are a bit out of the way, surrounded by hills.
