Campo Santo - City Park Yungay - Peru

Old Yungay is presided over by a tall white statue of Christ to the north, overlooking the devastating path of destruction left by the 1970 aluvión, a deadly mix of avalanche, waterfall and landslide caused by an earthquake. The aluvión was responsible for destroying Old Yungay and killing its 20,000 inhabitants. Today, this quiet area of gardens and gravestones allows for silent reflection on the disaster.
