Santa Marta, Colombia -- La Ciudad Perdida (The Lost City). Hidden (literally) in the crevices of northern Colombia’s Santa Marta Sierra Nevada mountain range, La Ciudad Perdida was built by the Tayrona people around 800 AD. Although built approximately 600 years before Machu Picchu, it was “discovered” by looters on the hunt for treasure in 1975 (60 years after Machu Picchu’s “discovery”).

Overlooking the upper chambers of Teyuna (The Lost City), Colombia -- at 1300m (4265 ft) on a mountain ridge in the Sierra Nevada range. It's believed that this capital of the Tayrona civilization was built in 800A.D., pre-dating Machu Picchu by 600 years. It's estimated that the visible excavated portions of the site, including 169 stone terraces, might only account for 10% of what's actually underneath.

Stone Bag Mystery Solved! In Neo-Assyrian art these bird-headed "genies," as they were long described, are now known to be apkallu, "bird-apkallu," mixed-feature exorcists and creatures of protection created by the god Ea. They traditionally served as advisors to kings. Their association with sacred trees, as they are often portrayed, remains somewhat perplexing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lanpernas2/8606000868/
