On June 16th, 1898, with a cargo of 1.000 tons of foodstuff, she departed Cadiz for Cienfuegos, but due to the war, she was forced to run for Havana. On July 4th, when at Punta Mangles, 9 miles from Havana, she was shelled by American warships and her Captain ran her aground in a channel. She lost two masts and was on fire. On July 5th, the launches Maria Cristina and Vigia managed to save the crew and part of the cargo. On July 6th, an American monitor fired 10 more shells on her, below the waterline, making her sink, the bow out of the water and leaning to port. Note: there are 3 points called Mangles in Cuba. It is the one between Bahia Honda-Mariel-Havana, the coastline she travelled in July 1898. She was not sunk at Mariel, neither at Havana (different sources)". www.wrecklist.eu.
