Païtiti is a three-tile impassable natural wonder in Civilization VI that was added in the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack. Each wonder tile provides +2 Culture Culture, +3 Gold Gold, and +2 Appeal to adjacent tiles. Cities that own tiles of Païtiti gain a +4 Gold Gold bonus on their international Trade Route Trade Routes.

In Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, discovering Païtiti grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.


Natural Wonder Paititi bonuses (Civ6)

Simply put, Païtiti is one of the absolute best natural wonders in the game - it's essentially a much better version of both Piopiotahi and the Cliffs of Dover, giving more total yields on more tiles and not locked into spawning on coastal tiles. The amount of Gold Gold and Culture Culture it gives is huge, and settling near this wonder in the early game will usually catapult the player to a very strong early Culture Culture lead, setting up a strong snowball. As Culture Culture is hard to come by early on, it becomes a very valued yield, and Païtiti hands out a lot of it. This is one of the few natural wonders that players should actively contest and fight for because of the long-term advantages it secures.

The Trade Route Trade Route effect from Païtiti can apply to any city that owns one of its tiles, regardless of how far away that city is. This makes it a good idea to split up the tiles so you can potentially have three cities getting +4 Gold Gold bonuses on each international Trade Route Trade Route, and also allows cities which are 4-5 hexes away from Païtiti to still benefit from this effect. Be sure to allow cities in this situation time to grow, as once another city owns those tiles they can no longer be swapped back to a city that's 4-5 hexes away.

Civilopedia entry[]

Humans, ever on the search for “lost cities,” particularly Lost Cities of Gold, tend to gravitate towards legends of great wealth and prosperity. Like most mystical cities, the prevailing thought is that Païtiti exists deep within the unknown wilds just waiting to be discovered. The Inca saw the city as the last safe haven from the Spanish Conquest. However, others (predominantly non-Incan explorers from the 1600s) perceived the city to be a treasure trove just waiting to be plundered. The legends of Païtiti’s wealth were perpetuated by the attack of Francisco Pizarro and his murder of Atahualpa, the last ruler of the Inca. He searched for the remaining gold said to exist, but Pizarro never received all of the alleged gold he tried so desperately to gain from his conquest. Despite multiple expeditions into the “unknown” jungles of the Amazon, no explorer has yet discovered the location of Païtiti.

    •  "I did not know that mankind was suffering for want of gold."
      – Henry David Thoreau
