Its inhabitants built it in the year 800 AD, by the “Tayrona” people, who had been inhabiting the area before the Spanish colonizers arrived in America.

Furthermore, it was declared a “World Heritage Biosphere Reserve” by UNESCO in 1979.

It is located on the edge of the Caribbean Sea, on the northern coast of Colombia, above the upper basin of the Buritaca River (between 900 and 1200 meters above sea level).
