Nestled in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, this ancient pre-Colombian city was probably founded around the year 800 by the Tayrona Indians.

Abandoned during the Spanish colonization and rediscovered in the 1970s, this city built on a mountainside above the Caribbean coast is one of the major archaeological sites of Colombia.

It is after a long trek in the subtropical jungle that you will discover the ruins of this “Lost City” still sacred to the indigeneous people.
