For the last 500 years Chilean students have repeated the mantra that Santiago City (Chile's capital, 7 million people, and Pinguin's hometown) was founded by the Spaniards. Today, there is strong evidence that was a lie, and that below the current city lies a forgotten Inca metropolis, founded at least a century before the Spanish conquest, during the Inca invasion of the 15th century. That put Santiago in the same stand that other pre-Hispanic cities that still exist today, like Mexico City and Quito, to name a few. More details on it.

Pinguin, mi amigo, what the Spanish did was not all that unusual.
 
Throughout Europe there are many examples of medieval to modern cities which have been built on the site of ancient towns and cities.
 
In recent developments in England, for example, construction sites for new buildings have unearthed ancient Roman settlements, and in some cases, Stone Age structures.
 
As for the lies, the conquering countries reinvented history to suit themselves, and the truth is only now, in modern times, being discovered.

Cosign. In any case, for us, citizens of Santiago, it is amazing to realize the place is older than ever thought. It is curious as well that the works to build the subway branches has opened a window to the past, as it has happened in Europe as well.

Hello mate, you're up and about early today.
 
Yes, the same thing is happening in London right now. Earthworks for a new building have revealed traces of ancient buildings which have been built on over the ages.
 
What a pity our ancestors didn't try and preserve some of them for our education and interest in how they lived.

Even our contemporaries in Chile many times turn down beautiful old buildings just in the name of "progress". For instance, when I see pictures of this building from Santiago, Chile, that was demolished in the 70s, I really get angry.

This is interesting. The Incas were certainly in northern and central Chile.
