ANGUSTIAS Long Key

The Nuestra Senora Las Angustias was one of 21 ships that set sail from Havana to Cadiz, Spain on July 13, 1733. The fleet was transporting treasure from the new world when the ships were caught in a hurricane. The Angustias, under the command of Francisco Sanchez Madrid, was pounded by 20 foot waves until she finally sunk near Long Key. It was not until 1971 that the Angustias resting place was discovered. Jack Haskings and Richard MacAllaster had done extensive research and found the treasure galleon. The ballast pile of the Angustias is 95 feet long and four feet high.
