The legend of El Dorado, and of a naked ruler who covered his body in gold dust, completely obsessed conquistadors and successive adventurers, who went in search of the sacred gold belonging to the Indians in Central and South America.

Beguilingly illustrated with images from the Gold Museum in Bogotá, as well as the author's own photographs.
