It has been broken in a storm. This picture is a little bit older, now there's not much left of the ship. The waves has destroyed almost everything. If you want to see the story of the stranded ship in pictures go to this site:

It's a whole series (several pages) about the history of the ship lying in the sand of Fuerteventura. The text is german but the pictures speak for themselves.

Yes, this has been one of the highlights of Fuerteventura. Too bad, that it's almost gone now.

Poor old girl. Still magestic though.

Yes, and dangerous! Lots of swimmers who try to get inside drowned.
