SEWELL, Cachapoal Province, Chile. Sewell was built high in the Andes mountains in 1905 to house workers at El Teniente, at one point the world's largest underground copper mine. In the 1960s, the town had about 15,000 people, but they eventually left due to the difficult terrain. Abandoned in 1980, Sewell is now a Unesco World Heritage site. Photo: Sewell and El Teniente.
