Faro A

Dive the Algarve with SUBNAUTAThis 17th century ship, of unknown identity, sank off the coast of Faro and was discovered by two Algarvian divers (José Augusto and Miguel Galvão) in 1996.

After three archaeological campaigns by the Portuguese Archaeology Institute, the site can now be visited. Situated about a mile off the coast of Ilha de Faro, the archaeological site is in the form of a nucleus with the remains of cargo (iron bars) and some cannons, also made from iron, scattered over an area of around a hundred meters.

The site in itself is now an artificial reef, on which a large shoal of pout permanently resides. The indentations in the hull structure serve as a shelter for some large conger eels and sizeable spider crabs.
