Imagine…going underwater to see the remains of the sunken palace of Cleopatra or the Lighthouse of Alexandria. As the earth has shifted through the ages and earthquakes have caused land to be lowered and raised, some amazing treasures have fallen into the water.
The bay is filled archaeological sunken treasures. In the 1990s archaeologist-divers found thousands of objects: 26 sphinxes, statues bearing gifts to the gods, blocks weighing up to 56 tons, and even Roman and Greek shipwrecks.
A committee has been set up to discuss the feasibility of creating an underwater museum which will enable visitors to more truly experience the palace and lighthouse the way they were.
