The naval officer, oceanographer, filmmaker, inventor and undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau between the years 1974-1975 arrived in Dia with his special submarine in search for the paradise described by Plato, the mythical city of Atlantis ! Instead, he discovered many ancient shipwrecks (such as the 17th-century French ship La Therese), and ancient settlements, as well as some cyclopean rocks in the form of an artificial jetty, revealing the largest and most important port of the ancient Minoan civilization kingdom of Knossos.
