LOST CITY TOUR

Teyuna Archaeological Park or Ciudad Perdida is one of the best examples of the power and fascination that the past has on our society, but it is also a place full of unknowns and history gaps in an area that has been inhabited by indigenous communities long before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores. In comparison with other South and Central America pre-Hispanic societies, still little what we know about the Tairona even though archaeological investigations in the Park and other areas of the Sierra Nevada keep throwing new and valuable information.

Do you know that…?

216 terraces have been discovered so far, 211 are circular-shape, 4 are quadrangular-shaped and probably were warehouses and one is a “chapel” that was used as a meeting place for the Tairona community?
