Colombia’s Lost City is Much Much Older than Famous Machu Picchu

Originally built by the Tayrona civilization over 1,000 years ago, this was only recently unearthed by the archaeologist team in the 1970s.

The Tayrona often referred to it as the Teyuna, but most experts nicknamed it Ciudad Perdida after rediscovering 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.

They are both found on the sides of rain forests in South America, and yet Teyuna, despite even being older than the Peruvian Machu Picchu, is still not as popular or anywhere near 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.

A total of 169 terraces were discovered here, with one of them being as large as nine hundred square meters in diameter.

As you can tell from the pictures, this is an insanely complex city, with the addition of a huge rock with mysterious lines carved on top of it. Many believe that this was originally a star map of some sort.

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.
