Eerie Ghost Town Comes Up for Air

7 of 13

Epecuen, Argentina

In this May 7, 2013 photo, buildings lay in ruins in Epecuen, a village that once was submerged in water in Argentina. Epecuen village was once home to 1,500 residents before it started flooding on November 10, 1985. After heavy rains the lake Epecuen burst its banks . It only took 20 days for the town to submerge beneath almost 10 metres of water forcing everybody to leave. As the years passed, slowly the water started to recede. Nowadays the town that was never rebuilt, and was famous for therapeutic salty waters that surrounded it, is once again becoming a tourist destination but for the ruins that have been left.
