An old Spanish shipwreck has been found off Culasi Point in Roxas City, Philippines.

Ricafrente noted that divers from the National Museum and Coast Guard Special Operations Group (CGSOG) went to the area 110 feet below sea level and conducted an underwater archeological survey that included photo documentation and sample retrieval of materials.

“The team was able to locate and pinpoint the sunken vessel which is currently lying on a seabed at 110 feet below sea level and it was largely covered with sand and broken pieces of artifacts scattered in the area,“ Ricafrente said.
