Portuguese cargo ship, launched in 1949. She was owned by Carregadores Açorianos Navigation Company and displaced 2.592 tons.
This ship sank during a severe sea storm near Leixão Grande rock on the 20th of May 1955.
The sea claimed the ship and broke her apart. Nowadays divers can find the ship's boiler and metal debris on the sea bottom.
Due to the location of the wreck, diving is only possible when the sea is flat due to the risk of divers been throwned onto the rocks and pier by waves.
She rests at 12m and, as all wrecks, has her share of marine life.
