THE LOST TREASURE OF THE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the lost treasure of the Spanish Armada?
During 1733, the Spanish Armada lost many ships off the
coast of the Florida Keys. A hurricane hit in July of this year and 20 Spanish
galleons were sunk. Of course, the Spaniards came as soon as possible and tried
their best to retrieve their lost treasures, however, only around $12,000 was
found after three long years of searching the waters around the Florida Keys.
Some scuba divers off the coast of the Florida Keys
have been fortunate enough to find some of the lost treasure from these 20
Spanish galleons, however, not even the tip of the fortunes have been found.
Among the ships and their locations, this
information has been noted.
- El Aviso – a dispatch boat, believed to be
located on the south end of Pacific Reef.
- El Infante – 60-gun galleon, believed to on the
Little Conch Reef.
- San Jose – believed to be on Crocker Reef.
- Almiranta – 58-galleon, believed to be off Long
- San Fernando – merchantmen, believed to be off
Grassy Key in around 40 feet of water.
- Seven other merchantmen, believed to be between
Upper Matecumbe and Long Key.
Most of the shipwrecks during 1733 are all believed
to be in shallow water of around 10 to 40 feet and could hold more treasure than
anyone could imagine. It only takes a bit of scuba gear, the time, and of course
the will power to search through all the shipwrecks that can be discovered. Good
luck on your quest of finding all the treasure that the waters of the Florida
Keys is hiding.
