How a complete German Village ended up hidden in the Amazon rainforest

When treasure hunters searched for the fabled lost city of gold, El Dorado, they couldn’t believe their eyes when they stumbled upon something even more bizarre.

Uncover the secrets of a hidden German town with a mysterious past and breathtakingly beautiful architecture. Take a journey back in time and discover the rich history and cultural treasures of this ethnic German enclave. 

Colonia Tovar is a small, mysterious town located in the South American country of Venezuela, nestled in the mountains at an altitude of about 2,200 meters (7,200 feet) above sea level. This hidden town remained isolated from the rest of the world for a long time and even had their own laws and principles they followed.

The thing that makes this town so remarkable is that a small group of people built the town and made an exact copy of a part of Germany in Venezuela. It’s almost scary how much the town looks like Germany. They even imported their customs, language, architecture and cuisine.
