San Gonzales Wreck

May 9, 2010 by Victoria Rowe No Comment

This Portuguese ship was wrecked in 1630 and 133 sailors perished. Pieces of porcelain and other objects were found in 1979 by the Jerling family. These were donated to Plettenberg Bay in 1988 and can be seen at the Municipal offices on Sewell Street.
