Considered by the international organization as "endangered" spaces, the company has decided to revive in all its splendor transcendental works of human construction. There is the example of the fortified city of Hatra , in present-day Iraq, the amphitheater of Leptis Magna , a Carthaginian (and later Roman) city in Mediterranean Libya, or the ancient city of Jerusalem , with its enormous 12-meter-high walls. and 2.5 wide that covered just over 4 kilometers.

Thanks to gifs that explain the process step by step, from the company they accompany with a small explanatory text the reason for the choice of these places: the temple of Bel, in Palmyra , in the center of present-day Syria, as it is a place that combined Greco-Roman techniques with Persian influences; he fortifications of Portobelo and San Lorenzo , in the province of Colón, in Panama, for being a crucial enclave for the Spanish crown in the Caribbean and which mixed a medieval air with neoclassical designs; and lastly, Nan Madol , a spectacular maze of small man-made islands with channels linked by rocks and coral in Micronesia.
