Description

  This is an open-air museum located on a natural promontory surrounded by sea. It is a homage to the people who dedicate their lives to the defence of marine ecosystems, embodied by the figure of Philippe Cousteau. It comprises a set of anchors from important boats including the anchor from the ship known as "Nuestra Señora de Atocha", a galleon which sank off the coast of the Straits of Florida in 1622. There is also a group of sculptures and metallic structures similar to sails.
