The Lost City

The Lost City is an archaeological site located high in the Sierra Nevada (1200m/3937ft), discovered in 1972 & belonging to the Tayrona indigenous people. The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta was named a Human Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986 & a national park by the Colombian Government in 1977. When the Spaniards arrived 500 years ago, the Kogi fled high into these coastal mountains. They believed the Sierra Nevada to be the Mother & The Heart of the World.
