Subject: RE: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
The one I know about is Port Royal, the Jamaican pirate city that was destroyed in an earthquake and tsumani in 1692. There's a very graphic description of the destruction of the city in James Michener's Caribbean (1989). Wikipedia lists a number of films where Port Royal played a part, including some of the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean novels.
I highly recommend the Michener book.
Any songs about Port Royal?
