The hidden lair consists of several nearly inaccessible stone structures, in which the archaeologists found “German coins from the late 1930s, fragments of ‘Made in Germany’ porcelain, and Nazi symbols on the walls,” according to the report.

The archaeological team’s leader, Daniel Schavelzon, said there seems to be no other explanation for the unusual structures than a planned refuge for German leaders in the event of a defeat, part of a larger project to create Nazi safe havens in far corners around the world.
