  1. Chincha Islands

    The Chincha Islands are a group of three small islands 21 kilometres off the southwest coast of Peru, to which they belong, near the town of Pisco. They were of interest for their extensive guano deposits, but the supplies were mostly exhausted by 1874. The largest of the islands, Isla Chincha Norte, is 0.8 miles long and up to 0.6 miles wide, and rises to a height of 34 m. Isla Chincha Centro is almost the same size as its neighbour to the north, while Isla Chincha Sur is half the size of its neighbours. The islands are mostly granite, and bordered with cliffs on all sides, upon which great numbers of seabirds nest. The islands were once the residence of the Chincha people, but only a few remains are to be found today. Peru began the export of guano in 1840. Spain, not having recognized Peru's independence and desiring the guano profits, occupied the islands in April 1864, setting off the Chincha Islands War.

The Nuttall Encyclopedia
