The sea around Cape Finisterre is one of the most important shipping routes known. More than 150 boats shipwrecked here because of bad weather and high maritime traffic. They have found their last resting place at the bottom of the sea, never making it to their final destination.
The more than 150 shipwrecks spread across Finisterre’s ocean floor can provide precious cultural and historical information. A shipwreck is a treasure that brings together those European nations having part of their heritage underwater.
