The original construction was made by the Tayrona civilization more than 1,000 years ago. This discovery was made by the archaeologist group in the 1970s.
It was often called the Teyuna by the Tayrona. However, most experts have given it the nickname Ciudad Perdida since they rediscovered it. The funny thing is that it is even greater than the ancient site of Machu Picchu, and yet nobody really knows about Colombia’s lost city.
Both can be found in South American rain forests, but Teyuna is not as well-known or as popular as Machu Picchu.
As we know by now, the Tayrona originally left their settlements back in the mid-17th century and we weren’t able to actually follow where they ran off to because the forests grew since then, covering their tracks off pretty well.
There were 169 terraces discovered in this area, one measuring nine hundred square metres.
This city is extremely complex, as you can see from the photos. It also has a large rock that has mysterious lines carved on it. Many believe that this is an original starmap.
It was nicknamed “Green Hell” or “Wide Set” by the expert treasure hunters that came upon it in 1972 when they rediscovered it by accident.
