Santa Giungla

Fully overgrown by vegetation only the bell tower is visible to the surroundings. It turned out to be a challenge getting near it. It was so hidden away within the forest I actually drove past it. The sun was also settling down so I really had to rush to capture some pictures when there was still plenty of light.

The current appearance of the church was constructed at the beginning of the 18th-century. The bell tower was also completely rebuilt during this period. The history of the location actually dates back to the 11th-century when it was incorporated into a fortified castle. Through the centuries it also served as a monastery, and later on as a farmhouse.

Nowadays it's in terrible shape. After being abandoned for well over a century nothing much is left from the church interiors. The complete roof is collapsed and the bell tower stands a bit crooked. Despite its bad shape and being completely covered in greenery, it truly transformed into an interesting scenery to witness.
