The old Girona Tower - Treasure within its Walls?

Old postcard of Girona, Torre Magdala (the Girona Tower) on the right. All old tower images copyright Patrice Chaplin.

Treasure recovered from the wrecked Galleon "Girona" which was part of the Spainsh Armada. This display was found by a Belgian team in 1967 and is on display in Ulster.

The Tower at Girona when it was still standing. Roger Mathieu who was the husband of Maria Tourdes and the owner of the house and tower at that time, leans against the wall.
