Recently, the Committee decided to open up to new categories such as cultural landscapes and routes, industrial heritage (for example, this year, Ivrea, the industrial city of the 20th century, in Italy), deserts, marine sites coastal and small island sites, so that the list is more diverse and more representative of World Heritage. The sites proposed for inscription must meet at least one of the ten selection criteria, such as, for example, representing a masterpiece of human creative genius, testifying to an exchange of influences during History, to bear exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a living or extinct civilization, or else to represent natural phenomena of exceptional beauty and aesthetic importance or, of course, to be eminently representative examples of ecological and biological processes … Italy is the country with the largest number (54), followed by China (53), Spain (47), France (44), Germany (44), and finally, Mexico (35).
An unforgettable spectacle! Do you know what the real reason is? It all started when the clergy of Santiago de Compostela Basilica felt pity for the way the poor pilgrims, their great most, spent the night before the religious ceremonies in honor of Santiago: snuggled together, out in the open, in the rain, and to the cold. So it was decided that they could shelter inside the Basilica. Of course, the scent inside it was almost unbeatable, there were times of little or no personal hygiene, pilgrims arrived at the Basilica after many kilometers made on foot, sweaty, with dirty clothes, etc. To fight this smell someone remembered that it would be convenient to fill the Basilica with the smell of incense. But, as the main nave is majestic, only a monumental incense burner would fulfill the intended objectives. Hands to work, a giant incense burner, a system of ropes that would allow you to swing it and call this exercise has another ceremony of praise to Santiago de Compostela! And so was born the giant incense burner used on pilgrimage days to Compostela… As I say, History is made of the sum of little stories…
For those who have never seen it… and for those who have seen it, remember!
Many times (almost always) every time we watch a documentary or we read a history book, we take that information as if was a concrete fact without questioning anything about it and we assimilate as if it were the absolute truth.
In this case, today we will talk about the pyramids and some data quite interesting.
Official history tells us that the pyramids of Egypt were made by slaves sent to be built tombs for their pharaohs (Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure). It is estimated that they were made approx. 5,000 years.
So let’s review how the pyramids are built having consider the Great Pyramid.
It is made up of 2,300,000 stone blocks ranging from 2.5 to 60 tons. 60 tons … it would be like moving the weight equivalent to 12 trucks together…
So what does the official story tell us? That the pyramids were built by slaves in a period 20 years approx. If we calculate the speed with which the stones should be placed taking into account the 2,300,000 stones, while they worked 10 hours a day every day of the week, 365 days a year, they had to put one stone on top of another every 2 minutes … A stone every two minutes … Stones ranging from 2.5 tons to 60 tons …
Another interesting fact about the pyramid is that if we see it from its highest point, the tip of the pyramid is offset by 6 millimeters from the base! 6 millimeters of error … after putting 2,300,000 stones at a height of almost 150 meters … Not even our most “modern” buildings have that precision, in fact, we are very far from matching that.
Researchers say the pyramids were built as graves. When they discovered the pyramids they had to use dynamite on some to enter because there was no entrance anywhere. Upon entering they found the sarcophagus with an earthenware of various tons on top that sealed it, but when they managed to get it out there there was no mummy inside. What is the explanation they gave?… Tomb desecrators! S,o in theory, the defilers got in (who knows how since there was no entrance to the pyramids) they raised the earthenware of several tons (I wonder how) they took out everything there inside, they put the china back, and they left… It has no sense.
Another interesting fact is that we know that the Egyptians painted hieroglyphs EVERYWHERE …
They told us EVERYTHING about their life, even how they bathed … but in NOT ONE SIDE tells how they made the pyramids. And more importantly … THERE WAS NOT ANOTHER hieroglyph painted inside the pyramids!
We know that the pyramids are aligned with the constellation of Orion…
They tell us that the slaves built the pyramids using ramps, pulleys, copper tools, wooden logs, etc. and the “funny thing” is that today with all our current technology it would be impossible for us to make a replica of the pyramids with that immense precision possessed by those of Egypt.
The official theory is as the sentence goes: a theory, nobody assures how the pyramids were built, moreover, every time there are new theories in the archaeological world. Anyway we see in the History or Discovery or in the books of history as they speak as if the official theory were fact.
Let’s continue in Egypt with the Sphinx
Have you ever thought how the Sphinx was made? Obviously one would think that it was assembled in parts but it is not like that, the sphinx is a SINGLE CARVED BLOCK… And how did they move such a weight? I don’t think they had one of these in those days.
Even with the most powerful crane we have today, we could not move that weight we can barely lift even more do pirouettes in the air… and especially while we are in LA ARENA … but it seems that Egyptian slaves moved that weight as they pleased.
The statue of Ramses II
When they found the statue of Ramses II on the ground they decided to move it just to build the Ramses Museum. But it turns out that the monument is a solid block of approx 1000 tons. So when they realized that it was going to be impossible for them to move the statue without cutting it into pieces they decided to build the museum around where the statue was located.
Let’s move on to the The Mortuary Temple of Seti I (aka The Temple of Osiris), in Abydos
LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING 5 IMAGES and the drawing:
What can be appreciated is not a painting … it is a carving. And this drawing seems to be carved with several centimeters of depth, that is, if we cut a piece of stone the drawing would still appear … Scientists have no idea how they did it, they say that the drawing is BURNT on the rock, there is no way that we can do that today.
The Flower of Life
“The Flower of Life is a secret symbol created by the inscription of 13 circles of the Flower of Life. By doing this, one can discover the most important and sacred model in the universe. “ A symbol that we find in all parts of the World. Da Vinci dedicated many studies to him
If we go to China to the “Forbidden City of China”, we find ourselves with the “Lions of Fu”
And what is under the claws?!…
Let’s go back to Egypt A submerged “city” was recently discovered near Alexandria called Thônis-Heracleion.
Many ancient cultures viewed the lion as the guardian of the knowledge! How many similar monuments we see in cities daily, but it all comes from an ancient tradition.
It’s obvious that it can’t be a coincidence… If we go from Egypt to Mexico… At the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacán…
We can see that their shrines were also aligned with the constellation Orion!
And that even the dimensions of the base of the pyramids are similar!!!
So how can it be that 2 cultures that according to the history books had nothing to do with each other and lived at different times build semi-identical monuments aligned with the stars? It would be a lot of coincidence… But it obviously doesn’t end here, it’s not even close to beginning… Hundreds of similar constructions between different cultures can be found in all parts of the World.
Let’s look at the Mayans and the Balinese (Indonesia)
All over the planet we can find pyramids!!!
Pyramids in China
The Chinese government denies the existence of the pyramids and even planted vegetation in one of them to try to hide it but they couldn’t hide it forever anyway. Who knows why they don’t want the world to know.
Pyramids in Italy
There are many archaeologists, scientists, researchers, etc. that are trying to bring this out into the open and there are others who CLAIM that the supposed pyramids are just natural mountains …
Please don’t tell me that the natural mountains lined Nature with Orion…
Submerged pyramids have been found in Yonaguni (Japan)
When they did carbon dating of the coral that formed under the pyramids from the moment of sinking gave them that: pyramids submerged about 10,000 years ago…
Pyramids in Antarctica
When I found out about this I thought it might be another one of the “things” that one sees on the internet but, researching more on the subject, I was surprised the number of archaeologists talking about this and I found a report on the RAI channel which surprised me. Scientists are alarmed that Antarctica is melting faster than they thought and beyond the consequences that that may bring us… and it is revealing incredible secrets to us.
A lot of things are coming to light lately, who knows what we can get to find out soon. Clearly we still don’t know our own World … Not what happened on this planet so many thousands of years ago … or maybe some do know?
300 ENIGMATIC PIECES IN THE JUNGLE OF ECUADOR In 1984 an impressive discovery in the jungle of Ecuador, in the Cueva de los Tayos, in a town called La Maná, convulsed the world of forbidden archeology, while – for course- they once again concealed the fact to keep us in the historical amnesia with which they always want to “sleep us”.
Pay attention to the latter… This piece is called the “Black Pyramid of the Son of the Creator“ It is so called because the translation of the inscriptions in the stone says: “The son of the creator comes from here“! The stone is black and white, with a brick pyramid with thirteen levels recorded on it. There is also a cleverly inlaid eye on top of the pyramid.
Something interesting, if we turn off the light and apply ultraviolet light …
But if you think this is interesting, wait until you see what its found when the stone pyramid it’s turned over:
The constellation of Orion
Clearly Orion meant something very important to the ancient civilizations But that’s what I was going for with this particular case … We really don’t know anything about what happened thousands of years ago…? Or if are there people who do know? Let’s take a good look at this next pyramid…
Have we not seen thousands of times the symbol of the pyramid and the eye?
Both the dollar pyramid and the mana artifact count with 13 steps! “The pyramid and the eye” is one of the symbols used by the current freemasonry…
Clearly this symbology dates back thousands of years and who knows how many thousands of years ago … Will it be that a few were passing the knowledge of generation after generation for thousands of years? What happened to all those ancient cultures so advanced? Did the Egyptians build the pyramids?… Or the pyramids already were there when the Egyptians arrived? Simple coincidences? … Or was there an ancient global civilization a thousand years ago? Or even some certain knowledge that was applied by all cultures through time?

I was loved archaeology mysteries and what came to my mind, when I read this nowadays, was the funny thing that there are still so many archaeological findings wrapped in mystery…
So, I hope you enjoy this post and, if by some funny circumstance you are the author of this crazily awesome compilation of historic mysteries, please contact me!
“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”
This is how the world famous Taj Mahal was made, based on a Shiva temple by artists from India, Turkey, Iran, Iraq. “You will never look at pottery the same way again. We tend to forget the work that goes into the things we take for granted”
Segovia is a Roman aqueduct, a dreamlike fortress, a huge Gothic cathedral. Segovia is the best Romanesque, it is a set of medieval towns such as Pedraza, Sepúlveda, Turégano, Cuéllar, Ayllón or Maderuelo. It is a set of royal palaces such as that of La Granja de San Ildefonso and Riofrío. It is the province of the beautiful castles. It is the Sierra de Guadarrama and ski resorts. It is a source of suckling pig and roast lamb. Segovia is, in short, a melting pot of history, culture, art, traditions and beautiful landscapes.
The famous Aqueduct is located in the Plaza del Azoguejo, and is undoubtedly the most representative element of the city. It was built between the second half of the 1st century and the 2nd century in the time of the emperors Vespasiano and Trajano, in order to bring the water from the Frío River, in a place called Acebeda to the city.
It consists of 20,400 stone blocks not joined by mass or any cement.
It is 728 meters long and 28.29 meters maximum height.
It has 167 arches, with a slope of 1%.
THE ROMANESQUE IN SEGOVIA
Segovia capital has about twenty Romanesque churches, among other styles.
Together with its province, Segovia has one of the most important concentrations of Romanesque remains in Spain.
The photographs that follow are a sample of these churches.
The city and province of Segovia constitute a world-class tourist area within Spain.
We have given a light review of its monuments and its Romanesque art, but Segovia also has its history, its beautiful landscapes and its gastronomy. Sample of which there are renowned and exquisite restaurants in the city and province. Their roast suckling pig is a delicious dish like no other.
There are famous masters in the art of preparing it and as a sample, the photograph of one of the most famous restaurants is inserted below.
