The town that drowned: Eerie pictures of the real life Atlantis that was underwater for 25 years

Villa Epecuen was established along the shore of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake southwest of Buenos Aires. In ongoing heavy rains caused the lake to overflow, leaving much of the town under water. In the wet weather reversed and the waters began to recede.

Back in the 1920s, a tourist village was established along the shore of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake some 600km southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1985, the salty waters broke through an earthen dam, and Villa Epecuen was doomed, including Carhue Cemetery pictured above. A slow-growing flood consumed the town until it reached a depth of 10m in 1993. The wet weather later reversed, and the waters began to recede in 2009.
