The Cemitério das Âncoras (The Anchor Graveyard) on Ilha de Tavira

The Cemitério das Âncoras (The Anchor Graveyard) on Ilha de Tavira (Algarve, Portugal) holds the remains of large anchors which apparently formed the weights for large nets (the technique of “armações de atum” invented by the Phoenicians). The nearby town of Tavira was historically devoted to tuna fishing before the industry’s declined and collapsed.
