museo-atlantico-01IT has quickly become one of the most extraordinary museums in the world.

Now Nerja is hoping to emulate the underwater sculpture park which began construction in Lanzarote last month, to the tune of €1 million .

The town is studying the cost of creating the first underwater museum in the western Mediterranean, capitalising on its wealth of already sunken treasures.

An actor from the cult Nerja-based TV show, Verano Azul, Miguel Joven, and the director of the Nerja SCUBA centre, Bernabe Toledo, presented the plan to the town hall.

He claims the museum will help preserve Nerja’s underwater ecosystem.
