The Diquis Spheres are considered one of the greatest mysteries in the world. What is the story behind the hundreds of massive stone spheres that were accidentally found in Costa Rica?
The Diquis Spheres were discovered in the 1940s during agricultural activities by the United Fruit Company. They were located on the bed of the Tirraba River, also known as Diquis River, near the towns of Palmar Sur and Palmar Norte in Costa Rica.
After their discovery, they were transported by rail all over the country. According to Samuel Lothrop, who recorded the total amount of spheres in 1963, they reached the number of 186.
Nevertheless, several hundreds of them had already been dispersed to various locations throughout the country, which means that they must have been even many more.
