The Museo Atlantico is the first underwater museum to open in Europe! After Mexico or the Bahamas, the artist Jason deCaires Taylor has indeed begun installing his underwater sculptures in the Canary Islands, off the coast of the island of Lanzarote. This fascinating underwater museum will for now consists of two monumental artworks, entitled The Raft of Lampedusa and The Rubicon, both poignant tributes to migrants and refugees. The underwater sculptures of this Museo Atlantico, installed on the ocean floor, 15 meters deep, will be accessible to divers and snorkelers. I also invite you to discover the previous works of Jason deCaires Taylor.
