Mysterious ‘White City’ Hidden In Honduras’ Jungle: Archaeological Excavations Have Begun

Posted on

The president of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández, announced the start of archaeological excavations in the so-called “White City” (La Ciudad Blanca), a long forgotten almost legendary city, probably hidden in the jungles of Honduras, Central America.

Discovered in 2012, the “White City” holds the remains of what would be a previously unknown civilization. The team of researchers used a device called (LiDAR), (light detection and ranging) that is perfectly capable to map ancient ruins and deliver precise locations of features withing fractions of meters, indispensable for further study.

The site of the mysterious city, which is not Maya, Inca or Lenca, (an indigenous people of southwestern Honduras and eastern El Salvador), is located in the department of Gracias a Dios (‘Thank God’) bordering Nicaragua, eastern Honduras.
