ships that sank in the coast of death fisterra finisterre

 

The Coast of Death houses the marine cemetery with the most shipwrecks catalogued in Spain.
Ships of all types lie at the bottom of these coasts: brigantines, galleons, sailboats, fishing boats, merchants, submarines, frigates, and ... even crude oil tankers.
Practically all the cultures or civilizations that crossed the seas left remains in the Coast of Death, enriched in this way with an underwater archeology of incalculable value.
The writer Hixinio Puentes, who works in the historical field, assures that "only the remains that rest on the continental shelf are known". Beyond the border that separates this platform from the great Atlantic depths, known as Alén do Cantil by the sailors, approximately 60 miles from the coast, the heritage that may exist is unknown.

DID YOU KNOW ? THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 IS FAR FROM OTHER PANDEMIES

With this post we resume the activity in our blog. It is a different post from the usual ones, and it was born with the aim of providing calmness in the face of the pandemic we are experiencing due to COVID-19. History can help us put into perspective what is happening with the current pandemic and, although it may seem otherwise, the severity of this outbreak appears to be far from the deadliest outbreaks.
