Cities that never existed but haunted the world




The cities that never existed have caused rivers of ink to flow and have become places of worship. It is not surprising, then, that they are given capital importance in literature. Here are some of the cities that have haunted the world.

1. Atlantis, one of the famous cities that never existed

Atlantis is possibly the most visible case of a lost civilization that has aroused the interest of archaeologists. Plato already spoke of this supposedly more advanced civilization in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias. It is possible that this was one of the ways to identify the so-called «Sea Peoples». In any case, this is one of the most widely followed fantastic hypotheses. A multitude of congresses and events have been held to identify the supposed site without reaching any conclusion.




 

2. Camelot

King Arthur is one of the iconic characters of English mythology. Camelot would be his kingdom and would include his castle and outbuildings. What is certain is that lovers of fantasy literature are familiar with this site mentioned for the first time during the twelfth century in the poem Lancelot, the knight of the chariot by Chretien de Troyes. The location cannot be determined exactly, but it would be in England. You can find references to this town in various poems, novels, comics and film productions.
