THE TREASURE OF THE
LOST ESPIRITU SANTO

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Where is the treasure of the Espiritu Santo?



In 1554 off the coast of Texas near South Padre Island a couple of Spanish ships, the Espiritu Santo and the San Esteban, ran into a hurricane and lost. Both ships ran aground along with the Santa Maria de Yciar, a companion ship.

Onboard was a fortune in gold on it's way back to Spain.

Only a few men reached land, but they were eaten by local cannibals, but one man survived and thus the story continues.

After telling the Spanish authorities a salvage crew was sent out but it was to late, the ships were swallowed up by the sands.

It is believed that the ships still lay buried either on South Padre Island or in the shallows between the island and the mainland.

In the 1940's a dredging crew disturbed the the Santa Maria De Yciar scattering coins along the coast.

After a big storm treasure hunters comb the area and relics are still being discovered to this very day.
