World’s Abandoned Places

In this May 7, 2013 photo, a cross lies broken on a tomb in the abandoned town of Epecuen, Argentina. This town was once home to 1,500 residents, but they were forced to leave in 1985 when heavy rains made the nearby lake overrun its banks and submerged the town beneath almost 30 feet of water. The town was never rebuilt as the water started to recede. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)
