One of the main attractions of the province is the Paracas National Reservation, where 216 species of birds have been found. Many beaches attract tourists during the summer months.
The coastal desert area around this reserve is the home of the pre-Inca Paracas culture. This people was known for its elaborate textiles and grave goods, including polychrome shawls made with camelid (llama or alpaca) wool and cotton, which date to 600 BCE.
