The wreck was discovered in 1986 by some pod razor shellfishmen. The Navy Diving Unit in Ferrol carried out three surveys in 1986 and a labor researcher in archives, identifying this wreck.
The following year, a group of archaeologists under the direction of Dr. Manuel Martín Bueno excavated the site (Finisterrae 87 project).
The recovered artifacts are currently preserved in the Museo do Mar de Galicia (Vigo, Spain).
