History

The preserved remains are made up of 7 iron cannons, a small anchor and a set of stones, possibly the ballast of the ship. The elements are very deteriorated.

The cannons were originally identified as part of the weapons of "La Ragazzona", a Venetian ship wrecked in the area on December 8th 1588 after being part of the Spanish Armada. A preliminary study of the cannons seems to indicate a chronology of the seventeenth century, which would invalidate the identification as “La Ragazzona”, but some of them could be consistent with the chronology of this ship.
