Alejandro's Update on the Preciosa Site - Part 1

Alejandro explaining his view of the wreck in Playa Preciosa.

He wrote his version in Spanish and translated it using Google.

A good reason to say the San Miguel in not the Preciosa Shipwreck

After long study of artifacts and silver coins of the period of King Charles I and his mother Juana (La Loca) that we recovered in this area of Playa Preciosa, I try to explain in a simple and clear that we are not talking the famous Galleon San Miguel. Each day we approach the possible investigation of the wreck event so far for me has no name, but we know we work in a place of historical importance.

Some people want to give our wreck, the name of San
Miguel, which I doubt, since the wreck of the San Miguel was in 1551 and the currencies of the tester with the letters LM or ML (Luis Rodriguez) could be minted in 1553. For this reason I had not dared to write anything specific about this wreck.

They should know that making a collection of information both in the towns near Playa Preciosa and
trying to quantify the objects that were recovered from 10 years ago in Playa Preciosa, yet we do not charge an amount large enough to treasure that is all the treasure. But neither can we say that the amount of silver discs and coins recovered to date is the excess of a full recovery as described in the archives of Seville India on the sinking of San Miguel.

On the other hand, the treasure that had been
on San Miguel came from Peru and Mexico, and so far we have not found if not artifacts from Mexico and all of Peru. The only data found in the wreck of the San Miguel which is similar to our Shipwreck of Playa Preciosa is that the galleon ran aground on a background of rock or stone slab, but we know from our explorations that this type of sea
bottom is in almost the entire north coast. Another detail of the
wreck of the San Miguel says that stranded on a lonely place north of Hispaniola, which does not coincide with our Beautiful Beach wreck. I say this because last because I was invited to participate in the project of a Taino Indian village in Playa Grande where we have our concession, which is less than 1 mile away from Playa Preciosa.

Another reason that makes me think that not the
San Miguel, is the famous seal of silver discs have only been found in different archaeological sites, Padre Island in Texas and Ines de Soto Cayo north of Cuba and now in Playa Preciosa . What research has been done on this label, is believed to be part of the purse that belonged to the Catholic Church. This seal was discovered in the fleet of 1554 Padre Island for the first time that separates us from San Miguel 4 years and agrees perfectly with the coinage of the letters Luis Rodriguez LM, which also recovered in the draft Texas and Cuba.
