A place abandoned by a fire that started in 1962 and has not been put out, as they say, to date. And it is not that the place is on fire but that the fire started in a mine and spread in the deep, underground, forcing its inhabitants to move. True or not, it is said that even today you can see the smoke coming out of some underground chimneys south of the state of Pennsylvania, USA
5) The Ruins of Baalbek
Who built the place? It is the question that no scientist or architect has been able to answer. To the east of Beirut we find a terrace formed with huge pottery of up to 20 meters and weighing almost 2,000 tons. Not even the most sophisticated machinery could move such parts today, who put them there?
Located in Wiltshire, England, a set of stones placed in four concentric circles. Although it is believed that they are only part of a larger construction, it is not yet known for what purpose they were placed like this. To predict the seasons, as a temple or as a monument to the dead are some theories. But either way it shows its charm during the summer solstice, when the Sun rises across its axis.
7) Gobekli Tepe
Translated into English “bellied hill”, it is the oldest temple in the world. It is located in the southeast of Turkey and is believed to have been built by the first nomads in the area. It dates from the year 8,000 BC, according to archaeologists, who also believe that it was abandoned and buried for 500 years.
8) Chavin de Huantar
And from the old continent we go to Peru. To the center of the Chavín culture, in Ancash. Where there is a monument that attests to the great capacity of pre-Columbian cultures when it comes to building. It is now considered as the most important pilgrimage center of the world of mountain ranges and one of the oldest vestiges of civilization in America.
9) The Coral Castle
Full of magic and occultism some describe it. It is said that in its construction more than 1,000,000 kilograms of coral were used. The architect of him, Edward Leedskalninan immigrant from the distant country of Latvia, he worked alone and at night to lift the place. Legend says he built it using dark arts. And the truth will never be known to anyone because she never mentioned to anyone how she achieved such a spectacular job.
The last but not least, is an abandoned Italian town. The area where it is located has a great seismic activity which forced its inhabitants to leave it. Today only the ruins remain of what once was a picturesque town, now exposed to the natural elements waiting to fall and giving only the view of a ghost town.
