Fascinating wreck likely sunk by pirates. Don't miss the curse tablet intended to keep the ship at the bottom of the sea. Lots of cargo vessels, etc on display.

Well worth a visit. A most comprehensive collection of goods retrieved from the depths with this ancient trading vessel. From amphorae to thousands of almonds, and numbers of mill stones used as ballast.

Found this museum very interesting and lots of information was in English too. This was located in the grounds of the castle so not far to travel.

The shipwreck museum is within the castle. Fairly small but has all exhibits with an English text. The main exhibition is the remains of the shipwreck but there are lots of other exhibits from on board and further explanations on the route of the boat. The castle walls are worth walking around to get a view of the coast and bits of the city.

What one sees are the skeletal remains of a Mediterranean ship that sailed about 3000 years ago. There are intact amphorae that the ship carried, fossilized almonds found in an amphora, and lead weights used in the ship's rigging.
