With this photo I finish the ARQUA visiting.
This is an exact replica of the Phoenician ship (Mazarron II named) found in 1998 off the coast of Mazarron (Region of Murcia). This wreck, the original, is still under water two meters deep. It is the oldest shipwreck (2700 years) found and that it is completely (almost) intact. It found with a shipment of silver (over 2000 kg), and perhaps this was the reason for its sinking
It has not yet been determined if taken out of the water and placed in a museum or left in situ. There is a project to create a tunnel to visit the ship and to admire. Today is protected from the sun and ocean currents with a kind of steel safe. Here you can see a picture of the Phoenician boat under water.
More photos, here.
