Pictures from a Spanish village show it was abandoned 30 years ago. In 1992, dozens of families living in Aceredo were forced to abandon homes to make way for a reservoir. Homeowners had to move when a Portuguese hydro plant closed its floodgates causing the Limia river to flood the valley where Aceredo is located.
Since then, Aceredo has been hidden underwater, only reappearing when the reservoir falls to very low levels. Photographs taken on Monday show a partially persevered, but ghostly Aceredo.
