  • Of the few existing underwater museums, this is one of the great and of which we can be proud. Treasures, parts, anchors, amphorae, ballasts, weapons, which were submerged, from the Phoenician and Roman wrecks. Art, unique pieces as gold coins salvaged from the Mercedes. Sea, its Fund provides the overview of his immense wealth in front of our eyes. Ancient and current techniques help us, admiring them, expand our culture of old and the always intriguing submerged world. Highly recommended a visit.
