Submerged, abandoned, but still standing. In countries including Spain, Italy and Macedonia, centuries-old churches have resisted the test of time and water. They offer us today a spectacle of great beauty.
In the middle of a lake or a river, sunken churches bear witness to a Christian presence through the ages. If the living stones now occupy other sanctuaries, these vestiges that remain bear witness to the faith that animated the generations that preceded us. The elements, when not the hand of man, have driven out the population. What remains are breathtaking ruins that attract tourists and the curious. Travel across the continents to discover some of the most beautiful sunken churches.
