Arqueología

El Parque Arqueológico la Ciudad Perdida, conocido también como Teyuna, se encuentra ubicado en la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, sobre una de las márgenes del río Buritaca.
 
    
A la Ciudad Perdida se accede, atravesando bosques llenos de exótica fauna y flora, puentes colgantes, montañas y cascadas. Allí, entre una selva tropical y árboles de 40 y 50 metros de altura se encuentran las ruinas del gran imperio Tayrona, caracterizadas por una sofisticada integración entre la naturaleza y la civilización y una maravillosa arquitectura en piedra.

In the southern foothills of the country the culture of San Agustin, developed several millennia before the discovery of America, left monumental statues and burial temples scalped in volcanic rock as vestiges of their rites.

Tierradentro, also situated in a large 500 square kilometer archeological area, large underground tombs are preserved and funeral urns are lodged. These tombs symbolize the magical-religious systems that governed the lives of the Paez Indians.

The Tayrona culture is one of the most advanced of pre-Hispanic times which developed in the foothills of the Santa Marta Sierra Nevada. Cobbled paths, bridges, canals, tiled terraces, and ceramics reflect the high level of development achieved by the vanished culture. The Lost City is a large pre-Hispanic city that can only be reached by foot and requires a special visitors permit issued by the INDERENA and ICAN, government agencies dedicated to the preservation of this unique archeological site.
