Fantastic easy wreck dive of a XVIII century ship, suppose to be an army ship in really bad conditions. French captain burned the ship named La Madeleine to avoid British army from Gibraltar to get it.
The wreck is not registered. Still you can find buttons from the officer' uniforms. Please do not touch, is illegal. Amazing live. Good for underwater archaeology
Local divers still keep this dive site as a secret.
Be responsible and good dive!
