It remained a hidden underwater world for nearly 25 years, but slowly the water around the 'town that drowned' has started to recede, exposing the ruins that nestle below.

Once a vibrant lake country spa town south of Buenos Aires, Epecuen was flooded nearly three decades ago - the lagoon salt water has left its mark with everything slowly emerging from the flood covered in a silvery-white layer

The Argentinian town was flooded without warning - on November 10, 1985 a long period of heavy rains finally sent the lagoon bursting over its banks, submerging the small community.

I wonder if we will ever find the real Atlantis?

I'm wondering if that place is stinking of decay or if it just smells strongly of salt.  (Anyone know?)
