Guatavita, the sacred lagoon, which geographically and legally belongs to the municipality of Sesquilé, was the ceremonial site in which the natives worshiped Chie, their water goddess, through lavish ceremonies that originated the legend of El Dorado and according to which the Muisca cacique arrived accompanied by four priests in a wooden raft to Guatavita, before submerging himself impregnated in gold and loaded with the treasures that he collected from the community in order to abandon them in the water as an offering and a symbol of adoration. For the natives of Guatavita the work in gold did not represent economic value but a way to approach their gods.
