Museo philippe cousteau salinas
The Philippe Cousteau Anchor Museum ((Spanish): Museo de Anclas Philippe Cousteau) is located in Salinas, a town within the Castrillón municipality of Asturias, Spain. It is reached by the N-632.
The open-air museum is situated on La Peñona peninsula at one end of the beach near the Arnao tunnel. It includes sails and deck anchors, along with a large, ceramic mural. The featured bust of Philippe Cousteau is the work of sculptor Vicente Menendez-Santarúa Prendes.
One of the anchors is from the bulk carrier Castillo de Salas that ran aground over rocks near Gijon in 1986.
