24 Jul Top 10 most wanted treasures in the world, every burglar’s dream
The Templar treasure, that of Blackbeard or Butch Cassidy… The treasures have fascinated for a long time and are the subject of great hunts which very often lead to nothing. But since hope is alive, there are always people who are up for playing Indiana Jones across the globe. In this, the 10 treasures of this top, which therefore remain to be found, are the object of the greatest covetousness. Because we are talking here of several millions. Most often in gold, but not only… Ideal for occupying vacations and weekends.
1. The treasure of Fort Alamo (United States)
A major event in the Texan Revolution, the siege of Fort Alamo, which saw Mexican troops face off against Texan soldiers, is at the origin of a persistent rumor about a mysterious treasure allegedly buried under the mission. This would be a significant amount of gold brought there at the time by men like Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett, with the aim of paying to raise an army to repel the attacks. Several searches were carried out but nothing was ever found.
2. The Amber Room (somewhere in Europe)
Donated in 1716 by King Frederick William I of Prussia to Tsar Peter the Great, the Amber Room was a 55 m2 room whose walls were entirely covered with intricate elements carved directly from pure amber. Stolen by the Nazis during WWII, who brought it to Königsberg Castle (like other art pieces stolen from the Russians), it later vanished. Many believe that it was destroyed after the passage of the Allies, but others continue to seek it. It is therefore officially the most coveted “real estate” in the world.
3. Le Flor de la Mar (Indian Ocean)
The ship of Vasco da Gamma’s brother made the connection between Portugal and India, before taking part in many battles. It was also obviously during one of them that he took charge of a large quantity of gold. He is also suspected of having transported the treasure of the kingdom of Melaka, which amounted to 60 tons of gold. Anyway, the Flor de la Mar once disappeared in the Indian Ocean without leaving any traces. Neither its carcass nor its contents were ever found.
