A Vitorian explorer locates two lost cities in Pakistan that could have been founded by Alexander the Great

The Vitorian explorer Miguel Gutiérrez Garitano has located in Pakistan what could be the remains of two lost cities founded by Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), as well as a burial mound that could correspond to the one erected in his day to house the remains of Bucephalus, the horse of the Macedonian conqueror. The location of what could be the cities of Alejandría Nicaea and Alejandría Bucéfala has occurred within the framework of a trip made at the end of April by Gutiérrez Garitano to the Punjab region (Pakistan), as confirmed to Europa Press by the explorer himself .

This expert, graduated in History, has spent years studying the Battle of Hydaspes (4th century BC), which faced Alexander the Great and the Indian king Poros. Last month’s trip to Punjab was carried out precisely within the framework of a training project on this contest designed for the La Exploradora Geographical Society, chaired by Gutiérrez Garitano himself. During the course of some research, this explorer was surprised by the characteristics of an adobe wall, as a result of which he began his investigations.

These investigations have led him to discover what, in his opinion, may be the cities of Alexandria Nicaea and Alexandria Bucephala, as well as the burial mound where the remains of Bucephalus, the legendary horse of the Macedonian conqueror, would be found. Miguel Gutiérrez Garitano has stressed that, regardless of whether or not this hypothesis is confirmed, the deposit found has “enormous value”, which is why he has contacted the Government of Pakistan to try to preserve it. It also plans to contact UNESCO to see if this international body can take care of these places.
