Consequently, the ruins of the 61 meters (183 feet) long, 14 meters (42 feet) wide 16th century colonial church have re-emerged. Can you imagine, its bell tower reaches 16 meters (48 feet) above the ground.

It is the second time the church has emerged from underwater. In 2002, the water was so low visitors could walk inside the church.

As described by The Telegraph: […] The church, in the Quechula locality, is the work of a group of monks headed by Friar Bartolome de la Casas, who arrived in the region inhabited by the Zoque people in the mid-16th century. […]
