Abstract
In October 2013 three recreational divers reported a casual finding under the waters of the Buendia reservoir (Castilla La Mancha, Spain) to the National Museum of Underwater Archaeology of Spain. It was a manmade cave carved in sandstone, with an access door, a window and several engravings similar to those recorded in some hermitages in the area. In June 2015, a campaign was conducted to inspect, document and assess the site. After initial historical and archaeological documentation, we did an underwater and terrestrial survey of this site and other nearby caves connected with hermitages. The National Museum of Underwater Archaeology of Spain has a great scientific interest in this site for different reasons. Documenting this site, a possible hermitage found in inland waters, is a pioneering research project in Castilla La Mancha and a milestone for the whole country of Spain, where few surveys of reservoirs have been done and even fewer corresponding to this historical period. In addition, this would also be an excellent example of collaboration between recreational divers and institutions in the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage.
