10 most beautiful lost cities

Tiwanaku was once a cultural center in Bolivia

was a pre-Columbian settlement that can be found in Western Bolivia. Its original name has been lost to the ages, as its inhabitants did not have a written language. 

Tiwanaku is thought to have been inhabited by peoples who probably spoke the Puquina language. It is thought that the site was inhabited from as early as 1500 BC.

The city reached its height between 300 BC and 300 AD when it appears to have been a cultural center. Around 1000 AD, the city fell into decline and was abandoned, as climatic changes forced the inhabitants to leave.

It was first recorded by Europeans in 1549, by Spanish conquistador Pedro Leon, whilst he was searching for the Inca capital. 

14. Vijayanagara


Vijaynagar was once one the largest cities in the world with 500,000 inhabitants. The Indian city flourished between the 14th century and 16th century, during the height of the power of the Vijayanagar empire. During this time, the empire was often in conflict with the Muslim kingdoms. In 1565, the empire’s armies suffered a massive and catastrophic defeat and Vijayanagara was taken. The victorious Muslim armies then proceeded to raze, depopulate, and destroy the city and its Hindu temples over a period of several months. Despite the empire continuing to exist thereafter during a slow decline, the original capital was not reoccupied or rebuilt. It has not been occupied since.

5 Leptis Magna: The Roman City Buried In Sand

A massive Roman city in Libya that was once a major trading hub for the empire was buried in a sandstorm.

The city is called Leptis Magna, and it was the place where the Roman emperor Septimus Severus was born. He turned it into a gigantic city and one of the most important parts of his empire, but when Rome started to fall, Leptis Magna fell with it. It was pillaged by raiders, destroyed by Arab invaders, left in ruins, and completely forgotten until it was buried under the drifting sands.

Leptis Magna spent about 1,200 years buried under sand dunes until 19th-century archaeologists found it. Buried under the sand, the city was almost perfectly preserved. They didn’t just find a few broken pots there; they got to unearth and walk through a whole ancient Roman city.

Leptis Magna still has an amphitheater, baths, a basilica, and a circus, all preserved so incredibly by the sand that they look almost exactly how they would have when the city was in its prime. It’s like stepping into a time machine. It’s a lost, forgotten city—and because it was forgotten, it never had to change.

Gordium: King Midas’ great capital

, or Górdion (pronounced Gor-di-yon) in Turkish, was the capital city of the ancient Phrygian Empire. Located in Asia Minor, it is roughly 47 miles (75 km) SW of Ankara. 

The city lies on what was once the ancient road between Lydia and Assyria that crossed the Sangarius River. Gordium’s most famous ruler was the quasi-legendary King Midas.

Gordium was sacked by the Cimmerians and subsequently abandoned in around 800 BCE but was rebuilt by the Persians.

Alexander the Great is said to have visited the city and solved the puzzle of the Gordian Knot, which said that whoever could loosen the knot would rule Asia — Alexander is said to have solved this problem by simply cutting the knot.

The forgotten city was rediscovered and excavated in 1900 by Gustav and Alfred Korte, and later by the Pennsylvanian Museum, between 1950 and 1973.

Helike: an ancient Greek city that sank

could very well be the real Atlantis. According to Greek legend, Helike was destroyed by an enraged and vengeful Poseidon for the Helikonians’ refusal to give their renowned statue of the sea god, or even a copy of it, to Ionian Greek colonists in Asia Minor (modern Turkey).

Based on accounts of ancient sources and on recent archaeology, it is believed that an earthquake in 373 BCE caused the groundbeneath the entire city to liquefy. A tsunami then engulfed the sunken city. According to ancient sources, the city disappeared in the space of just an hour or two and there were no survivors. 

Helike was rediscovered in the 1980s by two archaeologists who had been searching for it for over a decade. It has since been partially excavated.

2. Angkor

Angkor is a vast temple city in Cambodia featuring the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century AD. These include the famous Angkor Wat temple, the world’s largest single religious monument, and the Bayon temple (at Angkor Thom) with its multitude of massive stone faces. During its long history Angkor went through many changes in religion converting between Hinduism to Buddhism several times. The end of the Angkorian period is generally set as 1431, the year Angkor was sacked and looted by Ayutthaya invaders, though the civilization already had been in decline. Nearly all of Angkor was abandoned, except for Angkor Wat, which remained a Buddhist shrine.

9 Dvaraka: The Home Of Krishna

Photo credit: Go UNESCO

To a Hindu, Dvaraka (sometimes spelled Dwarka) is as sacred as a city can be. It is the ancient home of Krishna, the supreme personality of the God Head, who lived on the Earth 5,000 years ago.

Dvaraka was built by the architect of the gods under Krishna’s own orders, who demanded a city made of crystal, silver, and emeralds. He also demanded that 16,108 palaces be made for his 16,108 queens. In the end, though, the city was destroyed in a massive battle between Krishna and King Salva, who annihilated it with blasts of energy.

It all sounds like the last thing you’d expect to have any truth in it—but when archaeologists started exploring the sea where Dvaraka was supposed to have been, they actually found the ruins of a city that fit the description. It didn’t have 16,108 silver palaces, but it was a major ancient city with the same layout, and the rest fit as just a little bit of embellishment.

There’s reason to believe the real Dvaraka might have first been built 9,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest cities on Earth. At its peak, it was one of the busiest seaports in the world. Then, in the second millennium BC, it collapsed into the water, just like in the legend.

The lost city of La Ciudad Perdida

According to legend, around 1,300 years ago, a people called the Tairona were commanded by their gods to found the city of along a mountaintop in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. 

They would occupy the area for almost a millennia before the Spanish arrived in Columbia. Although the two civilizations never met face to face, the Tairona were wiped out by the diseases carried by the conquistadors.

Abandoned for hundreds of years, the settlement was found by a group of bandits in the 1970s, who plundered any valuables and sold them on the black market. Forgotten for almost 500 years, the city is now once again back on the map.

7. Hattusa was the capital of the once all-powerful Hittite Empire

The Hittite capital of near modern Boğazkale, Turkey, was lost to ravages of time for millennia. The city was sacked and the Hittite Empire collapsed during the so-called Bronze-Age collapse around 1200 BC.

This catastrophic event is, by some, thought to have begun with an invasion of the so-called «Sea Peoples» that also attacked and raided cities of the ancient Egyptians at around the same time. But it is likely that the city was finally destroyed by the neighboring Kashka, a bitter enemy of several centuries’ standing. 

The city was subsequently abandoned and forgotten. It is thought to have once housed around 45,000 people during its height. 


Hattusa was rediscovered in the 20th century by German archeologists. The team found a literal treasure trove of clay tablets with writings ranging from legal codes to literature.

11. Ctesiphon

In the 6th century Ctesiphon was one of the largest city in the world and one of the great cities of ancient Mesopotamia. Because of its importance, Ctesiphon was a major military objective for the Roman Empire and was captured by Rome, and later the Byzantine Empire, five times. The city fell to the Muslims during the Islamic conquest of Persia in 637. After the founding of the Abbasid capital at Baghdad in the 8th century the city went into a rapid decline and soon became a ghost town. Ctesiphon is believed to be the basis for the city of Isbanir in the Thousand and One Nights. Located in Iraq, the only visible remain today is the great arch Taq-i Kisra.

4 Vinland: The Viking Land Of Plenty

Photo credit: Clinton Pierce

In AD 1073, a German cleric named Adam of Bremen spoke to the Danish king Sven Estridsson. The Vikings, Estridsson told him, had sailed across the Atlantic Ocean and found a distant land where everything grew boundlessly. “It is called Vinland,” the cleric reported, “because vines grow there of their own accord.”

He wasn’t the only one telling the story. The Vikings had been passing it down themselves, saying they’d fought with natives who lived there, whom they’d named the Skraelingar. The Skraelingar, they said, dressed in white clothes and lived in caves and holes. When they attacked, they carried long poles and charged, screaming out loud cries of war.

Vinland was thought to be a Viking myth for centuries, even after the Spanish reached the Americas. It took until the 1960s until we found out they were telling the truth. Then, at L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, archaeologists found the remains of a Viking settlement made in the 11th century—the Vinland they’d told so many stories about.

Timgad was once a thriving Roman colony

, or Colonia Marciana Ulpia Traiana Thamugadi to the Romans, was once a thriving Roman colony in Algeria. It was founded by Emperor Trajan sometime around 100 AD.


The once-lost city is located in the Aures Mountains of the region and was named in honor of Trajan’s mother Marcia. The city was abandoned after being sacked by the Vandals in the 5th century and then the Berbers in the 7th century.

It was later buried by the sands of the Sahara until its rediscovery and excavation.

Today, it is noted for being a great example of the Roman grid system town planning. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.

Derinkuyu underground city was used until 1923

an ancient multi-leveled underground city beneath the present-day Dernikuyu City in Turkey. The entire complex extends to a depth of around 197 feet (60 meters) and is thought to have housed around 20,000 people at its height.

It would have been a fully functional city with livestock and food stores and is the largest underground excavation in Turkey. It is one of several similar complexes across Cappadocia with some being connected together by miles of tunnels.

Derinkuyu was carved by hand into the relatively soft, sandy, volcanic rock of the region. The ‘city’ thrived throughout the Byzantine era and was used as protection by Christians from assailing Muslim Arabs during the Arab-Byzantine wars. 

This strategy proved successful and they were used again during the Mongolian incursions of the 14th Century. When the Ottomans seized the area, the city was used on and off by locals fleeing from Ottoman reign right up to 1923.

After this time, the complex was largely forgotten until its rediscovery in 1963.

Character Bio by Shannon Messenger[]

Stina can be hard to like, and she prefers it that way. She’s not looking to be Miss Popular because most people aren’t worth her time—and someone should definitely think twice before they mess with her. Especially Dex. Sure, her family’s had a few scandals over the years—but that doesn’t change how important they are. After all, they’re single-handedly making sure unicorns remain a thriving species—and Stina’s a huge part of that. Maybe it’s not as fancy as the Vackers, but who cares about the Vackers, anyway? That family has gone majorly downhill since they started wasting so much time on Sophie Foster—and don’t even get Stina started on Sophie. As far as Stina’s concerned, Sophie Foster is the most overrated thing to hit Foxfire since the boring Great Gulon Incident.

24. Mohenjo-daro


Built around 2600 BC in present-day Pakistan, Mohenjo-daro was one of the early urban settlements in the world. It is sometimes referred to as “An Ancient Indus Valley Metropolis”. It has a planned layout based on a grid of streets, which were laid out in perfect patterns. At its height the city probably had around 35,000 residents. The buildings of the city were particularly advanced, with structures constructed of same-sized sun dried bricks of baked mud and burned wood. Mohenjo-daro and the Indus Valley civilization vanished without a trace from history around 1700 BC until discovered in the 1920s.

2 La Ciudad Perdida: The Lost Colombian City

Around 1,300 years ago, an ancient people called the Tairona built an incredible city along the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountainsides. It was put up at the top of the hills by the command of their god, who wanted them to live close to the stars.

People lived there for 700 to 800 years—until the Spanish conquistadors arrived. The Tairona never met them, but the diseases the Spaniards brought with them spread to the Tairona and wiped them out. The last people in the city died, it was left barren, and an entire civilization was forgotten for hundreds of years.

The city wasn’t discovered until the 1970s, when a group of bandits making their way through the jungle stumbled upon it by chance. By pure luck, they found an ancient, overgrown city full of gold jewelry and jade figures.

They pocketed what they could find and sold it on the black market, where they came to the attention of archaeologists. Soon, the city known only as “The Lost City” was found, after nearly 500 years hidden in the jungle.

4. Petra

Petra, the fabled “rose red city, half as old as time”, was the ancient capital of the Nabataean kingdom. A vast, unique city, carved into the side of the Wadi Musa Canyon in southern Jordan centuries ago by the Nabataeans, who turned it into an important junction for the silk and spice routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Greece and Rome. After several earthquakes crippled the vital water management system the city was almost completely abandoned in the 6th century. After the Crusades, Petra was forgotten in the Western world until the lost city was rediscovered by the Swiss traveler Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812.

8 Great Zimbabwe: The Medieval Castle Of Africa

Photo credit: Yves Picq

In the early 16th century, Portuguese explorers started reporting that they’d heard legends about a castle in Africa. In the land today known as Zimbabwe, the natives told them, was a stone fortress that towered over the trees. The locals called it “Symbaoe,” and even they didn’t know who had built it.

One explorer wrote home, “When, and by whom, these edifices were raised, as the people of the land are ignorant of the art of writing, there is no record, but they say they are the work of the devil, for in comparison with their power and knowledge it does not seem possible to them that they should be the work of man.”

For centuries, Europeans thought Symbaoe was just a superstitious story. Then, in the 19th century, they actually found it. There, in Zimbabwe, was a massive castle with stone walls more than 11 meters (36 ft) tall.

The castle was made in AD 900 by an African civilization that has been lost to time—but they were incredibly connected. Inside the fortress, relics were found from all around the world, likely gathered by trading with other countries. There were Arab coins, Persian pottery, and even relics from the Chinese Ming dynasty.

Great Zimbabwe is more than just a castle. It’s proof that a lost African civilization, forgotten to history, had trade routes that connected all the way to China.

12. Palmyra

flickr/A travers

For centuries Palmyra (“city of palm trees”) was an important and wealthy city located along the caravan routes linking Persia with the Mediterranean ports of Roman Syria. Beginning in 212, Palmyra’s trade diminished as the Sassanids occupied the mouth of the Tigris and the Euphrates. The Roman Emperor Diocletian built a wall and expanded the city in order to try and save it from the Sassanid threat. The city was captured by the Muslim Arabs in 634 but kept intact. The city declined under Ottoman rule, reducing to no more than an oasis village. In the 17th century its location was rediscovered by western travelers.

Krishna’s Sacred City of Dvārakā is another famous lost city

is a recently rediscovered Hindu, Jainist, and Buddhist sacred city. It forms one of the so-called Sapta Puri, or seven sacred cities, of Hinduism as was the legendary home of the God Krishna.

According to legend, the city was destroyed during a huge battle between Krishna and King Salva. The city was annihilated by blasts of energy never to be seen again.

Many millennia later, during the 1980s, Indian scientists found the ruins of a city near to where legend described it to be. It is now thought that the city could have been built around 9,000 years ago.


If true this would make it one of the oldest cities on Earth. 

26. Sukhothai

Sukhothai is one of Thailand’s earliest and most important historical cities. Originally a provincial town within the Angkor-based Khmer empire, Sukhothai gained its independence in the 13th century and became established as the capital of the first united and independent Tai state. The ancient town is reported to have had some 80,000 inhabitants. After 1351, when Ayutthaya was founded as the capital of a powerful rival Tai dynasty, Sukhothai’s influence began to decline, and in 1438 the town was conquered and incorporated into the Ayutthaya kingdom. Sukhothai was abandoned in the late 15th or early 16th century.

Hvalsey was a Viking settlement on Greenland

, aka ‘Whale Island’, is a long-lost Viking settlement located near Qaqortoq, Greenland. It is, to date, the largest and best-preserved example of Norse ruins in what is known as the Eastern Settlement.

It was settled around 1000 AD by Norse farmers who were thought to have arrived from Iceland. The site was probably home to about 4,000 people during its height. 

The Western Settlement would be abandoned in the 14th century, with Eastern Settlement lasting a little longer before also being abandoned. 

Records exist of a wedding being held in the settlement’s church in 1408. This was the last record of any habitation of the area.

The site was rediscovered in 1721 by a Danish missionary.


Match Status: Unregistered.

TIMKIN (father)

He was in Exillium for faking a talent so he could get in the elite levels but has earned his way back. He works with unicorns, trying to earn a way into the Nobility, and he works with the Black Swan as Coiffe.

VIKA (mother)

She works with unicorns and assisted with the baby alicorns. In Legacy when Stina was made a regent her mother said, «You will make us all proud.»

SOPHIE (former enemy/friend/possible love interest)

Stina isn’t very kind to Sophie, believing Sophie is of lower social status. In Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, she makes bets about how long Sophie will last at Foxfire (among other things) and mocked her often. She tells Biana that her and Fitz being friends with Sophie is ruining the Vacker name. In Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, Stina is the first to tell Sophie that Biana first befriended her because Alden forced her to. In Neverseen, Stina becomes somewhat less hostile and tells Sophie that if anyone could fix things, it would be her. Stina also confesses that part of the reason why she treated Sophie the way she did was because Sophie disliked her the first day she saw her in Slurps and Burps without knowing much about her and laughed at her. She becomes closer to Sophie in Legacy, and the two share a healthy friendship.

DEX (friend/former enemy/possible love interest)

Dex and Stina have a long-running battle of mean pranks on each other that started Pre-Keeper. Dex made Stina bald and in return, Stina put a muskog in Dex’s locker. Dex also gave Stina a beard, which was added as an extra pranking feature for her in the hairoids. Stina constantly holds the fact that Dex’s parents are a bad match over his head. In Legacy, they began their partnership on Team Valiant together and started to like each other more.

MARELLA (friend/former enemy/possible love interest)

Marella used to hate Stina in Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities and Book 2: Exile books of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series but eventually became friends with her during Everblaze when Sophie didn’t really pay attention to her. However, in Lodestar, Marella is envious of her when Stina manifests as an Empath, an ability that Marella wanted to manifest in to help her mother, and pulls away from Stina as a result.

MARUCA (friend/possible love interest)

Maruca and Stina became friends after Biana started hanging out with Sophie as Maruca felt abandoned by Biana. She was also the one that told Stina the real reason Biana became friends with Sophie, which caused Sophie to temporarily break her friendship with Biana as she was very upset that Biana had lied to her about them being friends.

BIANA (friend/former enemy/possible love interest)

Biana and Stina used to dislike each other in earlier books. Stina was the one who told Sophie that Biana was only friends with her because Alden forced her to. Later in Legacy, Stina and Biana work together to help Sophie find out who her biological parents are. It is also observed by Sophie in Legacy that Biana looked «less uncomfortable» about the fact that Stina was right. These two have formed a healthy friendship through Legacy since they are both on Team Valiant.

KEEFE (Possible love interest)

Keefe and Stina used to dislike each other in earlier books, mostly because he thought she was mean to Sophie. But some people ship them together because they are both empaths.

3 Heracleion: The Drowned Egyptian City

Photo credit: Christoph Gerigk/Franck Goddio/Hilti Foundation

Heracleion showed up in almost every Greek myth. It was the city where Heracles took his first steps into Africa. It was the place where Paris of Troy and his stolen bride Helen hid from Menelaus before the Trojan War. And we had no idea where it was.

As it turned out, there was a reason we couldn’t find one of Egypt’s most important ports: It was underwater. About 2,200 years ago, Heracleion was likely hit by an earthquake or a tsunami—and it drowned.

Divers swimming off the coast of Egypt stumbled upon it in the early 2000s. They found a strange rock under the water, and when they brought it up, they realized that it was a piece of an ancient statute. They dove back in to see what else was there. Soon, they’d found full statues, jewels, and even the drowned ruins of an ancient Egyptian temple.

A massive part of the city was still intact. Divers were able to find huge steles put up as notices to visitors, warning them, in hieroglyphics, of Egyptian tax laws. They found statues of ancient Egyptian gods, still in their original form, with fish swimming around them. It was an entire lost city, pulled from the depths of the water and brought back to life.

3. Tikal

Between ca. 200 to 900 AD, Tikal was the largest Mayan city with an estimated population between 100,000 and 200,000 inhabitants. As Tikal reached peak population, the area around the city suffered deforestation and erosion followed by a rapid decline in population levels. Tikal lost the majority of its population during the period from 830 to 950 and central authority seems to have collapsed rapidly. After 950, Tikal was all but deserted, although a small population may have survived in huts among the ruins. Even these people abandoned the city in the 10th or 11th centuries and the Guatemalan rainforest claimed the ruins for the next thousand years.

31. Skara Brae


Located on the main island of Orkney, Skara Brae is one of the best preserved Stone Age villages in Europe. It was covered for hundreds of years by a sand dune until a great storm exposed the site in 1850. The stone walls are relatively well preserved because the dwellings were filled by sand almost immediately after the site was abandoned. Because there were no trees on the island, furniture had to be made of stone and thus also survived. Skara Brae was occupied from roughly 3180 BC–2500 BC. After the climate changed, becoming much colder and wetter, the settlement was abandoned by its inhabitants.

Sigiriya sits on a giant rock outcrop

Мод Затерянный Город для Майнкрафт 1.12.1 / 1.11.2 позволяет игрокам выжить в заброшенном старом городе
, а не в обычном миром. Когда вы создаете новый мир в начале игры, вы можете выбрать тип мира как «Lost Cities». Вы начнете в старом городе размером с… весь мир. Есть дороги, большие мосты, туннели, подземные туннели… тонны различных типов подземелий с производителями и добычей, а также многое другое.

Minecraft — игра для выживания, которая высоко ценится, потому что игроки могут делать почти все в этом мире. Существует система под названием World Type, которая позволяет игрокам выбирать разные «типы» мира. Однако в Minecraft Vanilla Mojang полностью не применяет этот механизм, поскольку существует только 3 типа World: Basic World, Amplified World и Custom World. Несмотря на то, что вы все еще предоставляете игроку выбор, варианты довольно ограничены.

В The Lost Cities
или Затерянный Город
, хотя у игрока есть еще один вариант, The Lost Cities интереснее обычного мира Minecraft. В «Потерянных городах» игроки могут найти высокие здания с драгоценными добычами и опасными монстрами. Не только это, но вы также можете добавить свои собственные здания в моды и использовать блоки, построенные из других модов.

Мод Lost Cities — генератор мира, который позволяет добавлять постапокалиптические города в Майнкрафт. Вы можете выбрать тип заброшенного города-мира, в котором хотите жить, а мод случайным образом создаст целый мир, полный городов.

Каждый дюйм этого мира — место в городе, который когда-то процветал. Вы увидите здания, которые сейчас разрушаются, и в их стенах полно дыр.

Животные стали жить в городской местности, но здесь нет людей, которые могли бы их отпугнуть.

В настройках, которые появляются при создании мира, можно выбирать разные обстановки. Например, мир может быть наводнен водой:

Здесь большая часть мира находится под водой. Вам придется полагаться на свой ум, чтобы путешествовать по миру, или просто построить несколько лодок, чтобы хотя бы быть рядом с подводными местами. Если вам захочется приключений, можно попробовать найти лут в этих затопленных башнях.

Мир также может находиться во власти джунглей. В такой обстановке можно насладиться пугающей красотой: природа поглощает здания, созданные человечеством.

В этом моде большое количество вариантов для идеальных постапокалиптических миров. Он усложняет игру на выживание, добавляет непревзойденную атмосферу.

Taxila was captured by Darius and later surrendered to Alexander the Great

, aka Takshashila, is a rediscovered ancient city in northern Pakistan. The ruins are situated near modern Taxila in the Punjab region of Pakistan roughly 35 km (22 miles) NW of Rawalpindi.

The ancient city was captured by the Persian king, Darius the Great in 518 BC and later surrendered to Alexander the Great. It would go through a period of rule by various other conquerors before becoming an important Buddhist site.

It is thought to have been founded around 1000 BC; it would become an important city in the region owing to its position on East-West trade routes.

It would later undergo a period of decline until it was finally destroyed by the Huns in the 5th century AD. The city was rediscovered by Alexander Cunningham in the mid-19th century.


6 Sigiriya: The Eighth Wonder Of The World

In Sri Lanka, in the fifth century AD, King Kassapa built his palace atop a boulder that was 200 meters (650 ft) tall. According to the legends, it was one of the most incredible castles in the world. To get in, one had to walk up a large staircase that went through the mouth of a massive brick-and-plaster lion.

Kassapa didn’t live in his castle for long. Shortly after it was completed, his brother Mogallana attacked. Kassapa’s army deserted him, terrified for their lives, and his wives leaped off the side of the boulder to their deaths. Sigiriya was conquered and left behind as a monument to the king’s excess. For a while, it became an outpost and, later, a Buddhist monastery, but soon, it was forgotten to time.

When European archaeologists started investigating the story, though, they found out that the castle was real. There really was a massive lion guarding the staircase, and one really had to walk through his mouth to get in.

Inside, it is even more incredible than the legends said. At one part, there is a gleaming white parapet that works a mirror, letting the bloated king stare at his own reflection as he walks through his palace.

UNESCO declared Sigiriya the eighth wonder of the world, and today, it’s a popular tourist destination. But for a long time, it was nothing more than the forgotten ruins of a deposed tyrant.
