8. The Church of Potosi
Venezuela: Between 1985 and 2008, daytrippers and fishermen roving by boat beside the lake made in Táchira by the Uribante Reservoir, saw a spooky sight—a musty cross rising shadily out of the water. It was clear that the cross was attached to something fastening it—something deep and big underneath the surface. In 2008, it began to rise higher out of the water, exposing more of its gothic structure. It was exactly only the tip of something really huge. In fact, it was not the structure coming out of the water; rather lakes’ water was going down, exposing what the lake had buried for over 2 decades. The water dried entirely by 2010, exposing a huge stretch of land and a soaring, gothic church which was nearly flooded once.
The church was associated to the Potosi city, which was intentionally flooded in 1985 by the damming of a closing river to make hydroelectric power.
