Photographer's Note

The sunken port's ruins of the ancient town of Apolonia, was an active port from 5th century BC until the 13th century, built by the Phoenicians and later held by the Greek, Romans, Byzantines and the Crusadars , until a major battle in 1265 when fallen to the Mameluks army of king Bibers, than destroyed and abandoned.
The excavated town itself is a barrow on a cliff, and can't be seen from shore – the purpose was to defend the port from higher grounds, and endured many strategic battles.
In the WS #1 attached, I marked the main piers under water.
