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
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.
