- Pepper Wreck
The Pepper Wreck is the name of a shipwreck excavated at the mouth of the
Tagus River, Lisbon, Portugal, between 1996 and 2001.
It is believed to be the shipwreck of the Portuguese
Indiaman(?) "Nossa Senhora dos Mártire"s, lost there on September 14, 1606. Although scanty, the hull remains have preserved carpenters marks that allowed a tentative reconstruction of the ship’s hull.
shipwreckis the only Portuguese Indiaman from the 16th and early 17th centuries that has not been destroyed by treasure hunters.
