Lot of shipwrecks with history
During the first world war and even more during the second, Malta it was an strategic point for the control of the Mediterranean. During 1942 and only in one month, the Luftwaffe tried to snatch away from the allies the control of Malta with the insane amount of 11.000 tons of bombs, which finished with many British boats, submarines and airplanes…and now they make of Malta one of the main references in the world in shipwrecks diving. Even now a days many different technical diving centers are investigating and exploring for some more wrecks, still waiting on the depth.
And not just from the world war. Recently it was found a ship wreck next to the coast of Gozo, full of amphoras dated on the phoenicians stage.
