The mysteries of Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum in Ica, Peru
As I think back over our three years on the road, there were a lot of things we saw that intrigued me, but I never thought a bunch of rocks could capture my imagination so thoroughly. But then, I never thought I would see 20,000 extraordinary rocks intricately carved by some ancient civilization either.
The stones were obviously carved by an advanced society. They show many facets of life.
All it took was one quick look inside the door of Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum in Ica, Peru for me to want more. My curiosity had been piqued – what were all those carved stones anyway?
Fortunately, Dr. Cabrera’s daughter, Eugenio, willingly opened the museum to us and agreed to show us around. And what a tour it was! I will readily admit to having been ignorant on all matters surrounding the southern Peruvian mystery, so I hung onto her every word. Now I’m hooked and am fascinated by all the mysteries from the area – the famous Nazca Lines, the elongated conehead skulls, the mysterious wells in the desert… It’s all so fascinating and, well… mysterious.
Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum is a small, private museum located on the Plaza de Armas in Ica, Peru about four hours south of Lima. It was started by Dr. Cabrera as an attempt to safeguard the many mysterious carved rocks found in the area. Dr. Cabrera died a few years ago, but his daughter now maintains the museum and passes on some her father’s wisdom.
