History of Nuestra Senora De Las Maravillas


Nuestra Senora De Las Maravillas was officially filled with over five million pesos of treasure(probably even more in contraband). That treasure included much of the silver salvaged from the South Seas Fleet's Capitana of 1654. The Maravillas unexpedly ran into shallow water and was rammed by other ships of its fleet, forcing the captain to try to ground the Maravillas on a neraby reef off Grand Bahama Island. In the ensuing chaos, exacerbated by strong winds most of the crew died that night and the wreckage was scattered. Spanish salvagers recovered almost half a million pesos of treasure quickly, followed by more recoveries over the next several decades, yet with over half of the official cargo still unfound.
