Encountered on April 2, 2016. Altario is practically a ghost town. No names on the church to tell what denomination or when it was built. I am somewhat religious. I do not like to see churches abandoned or dying. When people arrived to settle a place the first few buildings they put up were a church and a school. These buildings represented a sense of permanence and the future, something larger than themselves.
The top of the tower is missing. Someone probably has the bell.
The door was wide open when I found it.
This is as far as I ventured. Hopefully some of the interior went to someplace deserving.
You can see daylight at the bottom of the church. This is why I did not venture too far inside. With part of the foundation missing I did not want to test how safe the inside was. Now it is a home for birds.
