In front of Grebeni, half a mile west of Dubrovnik, lies the remains of the Taranto, an Italian trading vessel built in Rotterdam in 1899 and mobilized by the Italian navy during the war for transporting military provisions. It sunk on 15 February 1943.
Like all metal objects, the Taranto is covered in various sponges, bryozoans, and anemones. Swimming around her, one may encounter schools of mullet and cardinal fish.
