The drought has discovered the ruins of a submerged city in Spain
The ruins of the Spanish city of Mansilla de La Sierra in the province of La Rioja, flooded nearly 60 years ago, appeared from under the water due to the prolonged drought.
The town of Mansilla de La Sierra 270 km to the North of Madrid had to drown in 1959 to make way for the expansion of the reservoir. All the inhabitants of the village moved to the new built near the same village, writes Daily Mail.
Since most of the year the city remains under water, and the ruins of the once again appear on the surface only as a result of severe drought. The water level is lowered enough to allow the curious “researchers” and to walk on the old city and explore what’s left of it.
Visitors can walk along the footpaths and observe the fragile buildings, petrified trees and crumbling bridges. All this together creates an eerie landscape.
