 This is the wreck of an Italian merchant ship, sunk in the waters off the town of Santa Caterina dello Jonio (CZ). It’s now divided into two parts, lying a short distance from each another, and is partially penetrable (the content is provided by Megale Hellas Diving Center)

 

What to see

 The wreck is always surrounded by dense shoals of damselfish and small bluefish; there are also numerous big red mullets, white seabreams and saddled seabreams. On the sheets of the motor ship there are large swaying spiral tubeworms and anemones; numerous also the urchins. It’s common to meet beautiful specimen of nudibranchs, anemones-hermit crab and octopus
