Throughout history, tales have been told to explorers about mythical places that no-one has ever seen – cities of gold, valleys of milk and honey. Many people have gone in search of these places, but none have succeeded and some have not come back at all.

10. El Dorado

This South American legend is possibly the most famous city of gold, thanks to the Disney adaptation of the story, and the failed British soap opera that used its name. But it’s also the most misinterpreted myth, as El Dorado was never a place, but a person. It was apparently the name given to the rulers ofMuisca society, who would cover themselves in gold every morning, and bathe in a sacred lake to wash it off again (the Muisca people saw gold as spiritually valuable rather than materially valuable). But when this legend reached the ears of greedy Spanish conquistadors, all they noted was the abundance of gold…and the story grew so that it was an entire city made of gold rather than an individual. The Muisca people did have amazingly intricate pieces of gold artwork, so looters would not be disappointed, but there was never a city called El Dorado that fitted the legend.
