Ciudad Perdida, the ‘Lost City’ of Colombia

In the early 1970s, a guaquero (‘grave robber’) stumbled across an ancient city buried deep in the jungle of Colombia's Sierra Nevada. It came to be known as Ciudad Perdida (‘Lost City’). Since then, excavations have uncovered an immense site laden with treasures. Ancient Origins visited the site in 2015 and brings you this video highlighting the beauty of this ancient treasure.
