Advertisement“Port visit by the Spanish Galleon Nao Trinidad.
The flagship of what was called Armada del Maluco (1519-1522), Trinidad was captained by Ferdinand Magellan. Five ships (Naos) departed from Sevilla, but only two made it to the Spice Islands, Nao Trinidad was one of them.
This beautiful replica weights 150ton, 93ft in length, and has a 26ft beam, three masts and a bowsprit. The height of the mainmast is more than 82 feet, five sails and five decks, built with an exquisite work in Iroko (African hardwood) and pinewood. This ship has sailed to many different ports across the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic European Coast as a training vessel and floating museum.
The Naos have this unique and original design that made them the most advanced in naval engineering, used first as cargo ships in Spain and then taking the lead as exploring vessels. She is a full-scale replica, faithful on her design and dimensions. More than a hundred artisans of the sea worked on her construction: such as ship carpenters, rope masters or naval engineers.
Currently, the Nao Trinidad is immersed in an important international tour that has the sponsorship of EXTENDA (Andalusia’s Regional Government), for the promotion of Andalusian products and companies abroad, being a true “ambassador” of Andalusia in all the countries where she will be stopping over this year, when we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the First Circumnavigation of the World. The greatest nautical achievement in history, that had Origin and Destination in Andalusia.
