Archeological Zones in Colombia


Archaeological Park
Localisation
 The San Agustín Archaeological Park, located on the Department of Huila, is the only place in the world highlighted by 500 imposing stone statues carved in accordance to the mythology of their Indian sculptors
The culture that made these thousands of amazing statues disappeared and we don't know why. There are some theories but nothing has been probed.   San Agustin probably is a city for the dead, meaning a kind of huge cemetery for religious, military and political leaders.  Many graves were found full of treasures and sadly some were stolen.
