Everyone knows about San Agustin, but did you know that there is another equally mysterious archaeological site?
Tierradentro was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 because of the many underground tombs discovered there. Some of them are more than 7m deep! Descending into these tombs is a truly incredible experience, especially as they are for the moment very well preserved.
Many historical explanations about these sacred places are still missing. However, researchers are convinced that they were built and governed by a different civilization from the one present in San Agustin.
Note: you need to be in good shape to explore the different archaeological sites that are perched on top of the hills. However, it’s worth it if you want to discover surprising tombs with splendid views.
