Cerro Blanco Anguish by  the droughts, men and  women walking without rest ,singing prayers asking to calm the hunger and  thirst. In this anguish they saw a beautiful condor that came from the sky and became in a man. All people were astonished and returned to their homes waiting for  a good augury that this Man from the heights has given to them as signal of their prayers. After the condor man toured sands and gorges, it went to the door of a beautiful woman, daughter of  the governor and offered her in exchange of her love, give to her city the vital element that is necessary for the  growing of plants. She accepted  and because the rare man  has knowledge of the mysteries of the nature, he took her to the mountains and asked to cry for her city. She cried during many days: It was so deep her feelings that  her tears perforated the soil , and it became in a big river that reached the valley where she lived. The rare man became Condor again and told the woman that he was the Lord of the heights asking for  her soul. They descend to the highest  part of the Nasca valley and the woman left her body becoming in a big  White Hill.

It is said that when people see the condor, it announces the arrive of water. Also, it is said that the  Lord of the Heights,  willing to award the fidelity of the woman, he send all the favors to the habitants of this regions. Because of her , the lord  full constantly the eternal springs.

Once per year there were put offerings in the top of the white hill asking to the Lord of the  hills the continue fluid of water in the  springs. The evidences are found in the vessels spread in that hill , many of them with gold powder like the vessel called  Ilipipipy that reverberates the light of the moon which is full of ashes of Hurango, in that way the prayers could reach directly to the spirits and gods.

A nasca tradition of the old  inhabitants is to make bonfires with  trunks of  huarangos because this tree represents the life. After  dancing , they drank around the “estaquerias” of the temples and the arid zones. When the bonfires went out, the ashes were keep in the vessels to offer  it in other ceremonies to the Goddess of the hills  which was a deity  linked to the fecundity that joined  breeding elements  of the nature. In the pampas where are traced the nasca lines , were found pieces of  vegetal carbon in small areas surrounded by rocks.
