MERCEDES FRIGATE – A PARADISE FOR TREASURE HUNTERS

MERCEDES FRIGATE
Are you a treasure hunter? 
The National Museum of Underwater Archaeology (ARQUA) in Cartagena houses one of the most valuable treasures ever found:
the treasure of the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes frigate.

The shipload. The exhibition ‘Ocean Navigation’ includes, among other treasures, 6,000 gold and silver coins from the end of the 18thC and the beginning of the 19thC.

Some other really valuable objects such as two gold tobacco cases, fragments of arms and navigation tools.

They all have reappeared after being hidden in the ocean depths for two centuries, since the Spanish ship sank after fighting against the British fleet during the Battle of Cape St. Mary in 1804. 

Mare Nostrum. ARQUA hides many a secret related to maritime traffic in the Mediterranean during Phoenician, Punic, Greek and Roman times. Inside the museum you will enjoy some amphora series, as well as sunken vessels and even a collection of elephant tusks from the Phoenician times.

A panoramic view of 3,000 years’ history. Once you are in ARQUA, you should definitely enjoy its restaurant’s extraordinary cuisine and excellent views of a port of cultures with more than 3,000 years of history.
