Underwater Roman Village?
Recently an online news site (20minutos.es) in Spain picked up on a "discovery" someone made in Google Earth of what looks like a submerged ancient village near San Javier in Spain. Apparently, another spanish-speaking person first posted about this in December 2005 at the Google Earth Community (GEC). You can see the location here (I've increased the brightness and contrast in the thumbnail here). The location does indeed look like there were structures now submerged. The water is quite shallow (according to some it is less than a meter), and some have speculated maybe no one has done any diving there.
I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this site? Is it an undiscovered ancient village? Or is it well known by the locals? Is it some kind of weird coral geometric coral formation? If no one knows, I bet some people will be doing some snorkeling and diving when it gets warmer.
Check out some other archaeological discoveries that have been made using Google Earth:
