Admiralship of the French fleet with about 60mts length, sunk in 1759 during the battle of Lagos. Only a few vestiges of this ship still remain here.
Among the remains of the ship is the imposing "anchor of mercy", about five and a half meters long and weighing about three tons. Also a few iron cannons.
But the fascinating thing is to be able to find, partially hidden by the structures of sand and concrete, the remains of the wooden skeleton of the old ship, where they have been for more than 250 years.
