Guatemala.- The Relief Map of Guatemala, which is 114 years old, stands out among the country's attractions for tourism.
That representation of the national territory rises over an approximate area of 1,800 square meters.
For its elaboration, bricks, mortar and a coating of Portland cement were used, and in the spaces corresponding to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans pumice was used.
Likewise, the contours are made of bricks, the railroad lines are made of lead, and the bridges and a water tank that feeds the lakes and rivers are made of steel.
Experts pointed out that all landforms, cities, roads and railroads were accurately replicated and heights are indicated by contours, which range from zero to 4,000 meters above sea level.
