SUMMARY

El Prodigio is one very hidden paradise, nested in between the pristine Jungle of eastern Antioquia and the Magdalena valley. Long before Europeans even suspected Colombia existed, an intriguing indigenous culture called the “ Pantagoras “ inhabited the region, and used the countless caves and the overhanging limestone shelters to live, hunt, and also for ceremonial purposes. In many of theses cave still remains ceramics, spears, arrow tips and many hints of how theses people lived. After the civil war and violent events of the the 90’s in the area, the area became peaceful again. Proud locals, eager  to finally explore their land, started to walk int he foot steps of the Pantagoras, and rediscovered at over 28 impressive archaeological sites in a 30 kilometer radius. Follow theses local guides and let the petroglyphs and pictograms they found revive the Pantagoras culture in front of your eyes.
