El Galeon Andalucia
El Galeon 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.
