BLAS DE LEZO

buceaenlahistoria.org

The light cruiser of the Spanish armada Blas de Lezo during naval maneuvers in June 1932, compared to Finisterre, when sailing between the coast and shoal of O'Centolo, collided with one of the two existing there stone needles, unlabelled at that time, and he broke the keel. He sank five miles from the coast to 76 meters deep. There were no casualties. Facing north, heading toward the open sea, his remains are embedded between two large rocky headlands. It stays in one piece, with its once-proud artillery (cannons, machine guns, torpedo batteries) sadly derailed between an amalgam of materials.
