    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Columbian settlements with Stone Spheres of Diquís (Costa Rica) today joined the list of sites declared as a World Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco).

    The area is located south of the country, covering four areas of archaeological remains in the delta of the river Diquís.  They are considered exceptional prevailing testimonies of complex social and economic civilizations from the period between 500 and 1500 AD.

    The World Heritage site consists of mounds, paved areas, graves and in particular, a series of stone spheres from 0.7 to 2.57 meters in diameter whose creation, use and significance remain largely a mystery to this day.

    “The remarkable peculiarity of these areas lies in the perfection of its forms, as well as their number, size and density, and also the fact that they are in their primitive sites. The fact that these vestiges remained buried for centuries under thick layers of sediment can explain how they have made it out unscathed as looting that has damaged the vast majority of Costa Rican archaeological sites,” said Unesco.

    Along with the areas of Diquís, eight other sites in the world who obtained the declaration were announced: Historical and Archaeological Ensemble of Bolgar (Russian Federation), landscaped complex Trang An (Viet Nam), Great Himalayan National Park (India) Shrine of wild fauna and flora of the mountain chain Hamiguitan (Philippines), Stevns Klint (Denmark), the South China Karst (China), Forest Bialowie(Belarus / Poland), Wadden Sea (Germany / Denmark).
