Subterranean passageways once believed to be an urban legend have actually turned out to be real.
Authorities have confirmed that an extensive labyrinth of subterranean tunnels beneath the Mexican city of Puebla actually does exist despite long being thought of as little more than a myth.
The passageways, which are believed to date back 500 years and were likely to have served as drainage channels for the city, are approximately seven meters high and three meters wide.
So far four separate entrances to the tunnel network have been found and authorities maintain that there could be many more similar passageways beneath the city just waiting to be found.
A sum of money equating to around $300,000 has been assigned to excavate and restore the tunnels with the intention of ultimately turning them in to a lucrative tourist attraction for the area.
Until then however authorities are keeping their location a closely guarded secret.
