Default Valchiusella - Italy's hidden underground temple

Eighth wonder of the world? The stunning temples secretly carved out below ground by 'paranormal' eccentric

Quote:
Nestling in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. Peppered with medieval villages, the hillside scenery is certainly picturesque.

But it is deep underground, buried into the ancient rock, that the region's greatest wonders are concealed.

Here, 100ft down and hidden from public view, lies an astonishing secret - one that has drawn comparisons with the fabled city of Atlantis and has been dubbed 'the Eighth Wonder of the World' by the Italian government.

For weaving their way underneath the hillside are nine ornate temples, on five levels, whose scale and opulence take the breath away.
mystic or not, these pictures are amazing.

Imagine being one of the government tax agents thinking you're going to uncover some squalid hole in which a tax dodger has been hiding money, and walking into that!
