The “Christ of the Abyss” is a bronze likeness of Jesus Christ made by Guido Galletti. It was placed upon the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea as an honor to Dario Gonzatt, the first Italian to use scuba diving gear. It was installed 17 meters under the waves in August of 1954, where it stays to this day.
This is one of the most famous diving spots in the entire area. Thanks to its not prohibitive depth and its size, the statue can even be admired from the surface. For this reason it is frequented by lots of free divers, snorkelling lovers or simply curious swimmers.
