It was a land where gold was so abundant it had no value in modern terms, but its cultural significance went to the heart of an ancient Colombian civilisation. What remains today makes up the world’s most extraordinary collection of exquisite gold artefacts.  It was the legend of El Dorado – “the golden one” and his a city of gold – that beyond the forests of the Amazon, attracted the conquistadors with their lust for gold....
