The Column Wreck dive site, located between Cala Bona and Cala Millor off the east coast of Mallorca, features the remains of a 13th century Roman merchant ship that was transporting columns made of white marble. The wreck lies on a sandy bottom covered with posidonia seagrass at the maximum depth of 14m/46ft. And even though this is such an old wreck, divers can still see four iron cannons of the ship that were used to fire stone balls.
