Torrevieja Maritime Museum
The exhibition is located in the Puerto Deportivo. There are three floating exhibits: the patrol boat Albatros III, the submarine Delfin and the sailboat Pascual Flores, as well as more than a dozen small vessels, various artillery, mine and torpedo weapons.
This section of the Sea and Salt Museum was created by a gift from the Ministry of defense to the city of Torrevieja of a decommissioned submarine, which became the first Museum warship in Spain. Public access to the submarine was opened on may 8, 2004, and later there were other exhibits. The Museum is open from 9 to 14 hours from Tuesday to Sunday, the ticket price is 2 euros.
On the pier where Museum ships are moored, there is a collection of small vessels: a Fishing motor launch and a police boat, sports sailing yachts.
Unique steam river tug with two pairs of paddle wheels.
Due to the large width of the hull, the vessel has a very small draft, such vessels were used in salt mines in the Salada lagoon.
533 mm French-made torpedo of the 60s.
Such torpedoes were in service with Daphné-class submarines of the Spanish Navy.
Depth charge on the bomb thrower.
Unfortunately, I looked at the coastal exhibits almost on the run, since my time was very limited and I spent it on a detailed acquaintance with the Museum ships:
