LA CASA MUSEO MARIA REICHE, is a house-museum inaugurated in 1994. It is located in Nazca.

Maria Reiche began a life dedicated to the study and investigation of the Nazca lines in 1946, stimulated by the studies of the American archaeologist Paul Kosok. Mathematics, geography and physics were of great interest to her. For this reason, in 1992 the government granted her the title of honorary citizen of Peru, which was made official with her definitive nationalization the following year.
