The Cruz Sagrada was a 16th century Portugese caravel.
The ship crashed into the Brazilian coast during a storm and ran around in a sea cave near Rio de Janeiro. The surviving crew discovered that the cave network offered no easy access to dry land and were forced to make a dangerous climb along the interior walls and up the cliffside. Only five men successfully made it but it was all for naught: they were killed by hostile natives.
The Cruz Sagrada was lost for centuries until a piece from its sail bearing part of a red Maltese cross was discovered by a fisherman and word of the cave was carried back to the Vamos Todos bar in Rio.
Behind the scenesEdit
