The aesthetics of El Dorado and its inhabitants are a mixture of different prehispanic cultures of Central America, in order to avoid connecting El Dorado to any particular geographical place. So, the buildings and temples are a composition of the Mixteco city of Mitla, in modern Oaxaca, Mexico, and the Mayan city of the Palanque. The features of the locals are distinctly Mayan, as well the murals and the Xibalba tradition. The weapons, attires and human sacrifices customs are mostly of Aztec origin. Curiously, even though the inspiration comes from Central and Southern Mexico, the most widely accepted location for the real El Dorado legend was the Amazonian rain forest. See more »
In real life, Hernan Cortes was a rogue captain who disobeyed orders from Diego de Cuellar, governor of Cuba, and was off to conquer Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire. The most famous explorers that did try to find El Dorado were Francisco de Orellana (who actually disappeared in the Amazon looking for it) and Lope de Aguirre, later immortalized in Werner Herzog's "Aguirre the Wrath of God" (1972) See more »
