‘Reappearance’ of a 16th century convent!

September 5, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ruins of the submerged Santiago Convent, Mexico

“A 16th Century convent in Mexico has re-emerged as water levels in a dam reservoir have fallen to low levels.

Low water levels at the Malpaso hydroelectric dam in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas have uncovered part of the convent, which was submerged along with the community of Quechula 40 years ago when the dam was built.

Only older residents still remember the neoclassical Santiago Convent.”
