In Colombia they found a sunken galleon with treasures for $ 1 billion

President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos spoke about the find at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea . Divers found the Spanish galleon "San Jose", sunken more than 300 years ago, along with a load of gold, silver and emeralds. According to the president, the value of the treasures can be about 1 billion dollars.

The find may become unique, since this amount of treasure is one of the largest that has ever sunk into the sea. The ship "San Jose" belonged to the fleet of King Philip V and sank in 1708 near the port city of Cartagena after the attack of British military vessels.

According to the President of Colombia, a special museum for the display of treasures will be built in Cartagena. The location of the sunken ship is still kept secret.
