„Parce Nacional Volcan Isluga, Region II, Chile (John Warburton-Lee)“

from the gallery of John Warburton-Lee Photography

Chile, Region II, Parque Nacional Volcan Isluga. The pretty Andean church at the village of Isluga. Built in the 17th century, the church has thick, whitewashed adobe walls. The main building is enclosed by a low wall trimmed with arches. Just outside the wall sits the two-tiered bell tower. Both church and houses in the village remain locked for most of the year - an 'abandoned village', the inhabitants return only for religious ceremonies and festivals.
