RUINS OF LA JOYA DE CERÉN: The Pompey of America

Declared as a patrimony of humanity by the UNESCO in 1993, at this location we find the telling remains of an old, under ground city, which show what a typical, Mayan agricultural village looked like 1,400 years ago. About A.D. 600 the inhabitants of this city were forced to abandon it due to eruptions of volcano Laguna Caldera.

RUINS OF CASA BLANCA: More Treasures Yet to be Discovered

Located in Chalchuapa, along with Tazumal, this site is a pre-Columbian worship Mayan place in which we find a series of pyramids raging from 500 B.C. until A.D. 900. Only two of them have been uncovered and partially restored. More history is waiting to be unveiled to amaze the minds of those who look for mysteries to solve!

RUINS OF SAN ANDRÉS: The Mystery of Life and Death and the Deities

This is a pre-Columbian archaeological site that Mayan groups populated and rebuilt since 900 B.C. Because of a nearby volcano activity in A.D. 250 at Ilopango Lake, the settlement was abandoned only to become an important center of Mayan lordship between A.D. 600 and 900. Notorious therein are the Acropolis and the Bell Pyramid, perhaps used as burial places for the elite.

Old City Gates: In and Out

As fundamental parts of the walls whose foundations take us back to the times of Solomon and Nehemiah and which were later rebuilt by the Ottomans in the 1500’s A.D., the 8 main gates of Jerusalem bring to life the many biblical references to important events, characters, and moral lessons (Psalm 100:4; Revelation 22:14).
