EL DORADO-----THE CITY OF GOLD [] Dorado is the name of the mythical city of gold that many Spanish explorers spent time looking for from shortly after Columbus discovery of the New World in 1492 until almost 200 years later The story of the city of gold came from a tribal chief in South America who covered himself with gold dust for a ceremony to become the tribeQB leader, The reports of the golden chief grew into stories of a golden city known as El Dorado Spanish explorers, known as conquistadores, explored much of Central and South America looking for El Dorado. In their searches, they mapped large portions of the Americas and found their way to the Pacific Ocean, which had never been seen from the easLThe Spanish who came to find El Dorado spread their Spanish culture throughout these areas and defeated many of the native tribes. The explorers were always convinced that they were close to El Dorado As they kept exploring, they began to run out of room for El Dorado to hide: Finally, they had explored Central and South America and failed to find it. At this point, the Spanish controlled a large amount of the American continents and had explored a great Section of the Western Hemisphere, including parts of the Pacific Ocean. This need to explore was driven in part by the myth of El Dorado. EYE PHYSICIAN &. SURGEON JARED YOUNGER, MD Find these hidden items in the big picture.
