El Galeón Andalucia in Charleston

This weekend, the husband and I had the opportunity to explore the El Galeón Andalucia as it makes it’s way back down to St. Augustine, FL. It’s currently wrapping up it’s 2015 US East Coast tour, having stopped in Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and North Carolina.

Per its’ website:

El Galeón Andalucia (refered to as in Spain) is a 170 foot, 495 ton, authentic wooden replica of a galleon that was part of Spain’s West Indies fleet. With information about 16th century European sailing techniques and technology, as well as important Florida history exhibits, El Galeón will tell the 500 year story since the arrival of Juan Ponce de León on the eastern shore of Florida. St. Augustine has been named El Galeón’s home American port for the foreseeable future.

It’s always fun to see a bit of history that isn’t Charleston! Check out their website if you’re curious about the ship!
