The Mysterious Cities of Gold

This is the French-produced epic story of three children, Esteban, Zia, Tao, who are in search of the legendary seven cities of gold in the New World in year 1532 AD. Esteban-an orphan, who, legend has it, can harness the power of the sun-meets up with Mendoza, a sailor who has the other half of the medallion Esteban posesses. They travel to the Americas aboard the ship Esperanza (Spanish for Hope). In the New World, they rescue a kidnaped Inca girl named Zia and meet the last remaining member of the Hiva tribe, Tao. The Hiva was the race that built the cities of gold. They find various clues left by the Hiva, which finally lead them to one of the cities. That was the only city they discovered however, because the series was cancelled at this point, leaving the other six cities of gold waiting to be discovered.

Children of the Sun,/
