About us

El Galeón will be making its return to Plymouth from 15 to 19 May 2024!

The full size replica of a 17th century Spanish galleon will be open to the people of Plymouth and visitors to the city to step onboard. El Galeón will be moored at Barbican Landing Stage with visitors being able to explore this 'living museum' during her stay.

Accompanying Galeón Andalucía is the Pascual Flores, an original example of a “pailebote” (Spanish for pilot’s boat) which was dedicated to the export of fruit, salt and general cargo, both in Mediterranean ports and anchorages and on the North and West coasts of Africa. Pascual Flores will be moored on the floating pontoon at Cattewater Harbour.


Tickets are available now and can be booked online for El Galeón directly via the ship's booking website or bought on the day at the entrance to the Barbican Landing Stage. Please note that tickets sold online are in Euros and a booking fee applies.


El Galeón will be moored at Barbican Landing Stage and Pascual Flores will be moored on the floating pontoon at Cattewater Harbour.


El Galeón (17 to 19 May) and Pascual Flores (15 to 19 May) will be in Plymouth and open to visit from 10am until 8pm each day (last admission 7pm).

About El Galeón

The impressive tall ship is nearly 50m in length and will be impossible to miss when she arrives in Plymouth in May. As a floating museum, members of the public will be able to go onboard and explore the ship's six decks which offer a fascinating range of features, exhibits and displays. El Galeón's live-in crew will also be on hand to talk to visitors and explain more about the ship and the history behind the Spanish galleon fleet which were used predominantly between the 16th and 18th centuries and took the lead role in many of the world's trade and cultural routes that were the longest in length and duration than any other in the history of maritime navigation.

And, whilst these were the ships that comprised the Spanish Armada which in 1588 attempted, unsuccessfully, to defeat an English fleet led by Sir Francis Drake it was the galleons that brought the "two halves of the Earth" together, exchanging goods, people, cultures, ideas and aesthetics from several continents.

Built by the Nao Victoria Foundation at the Punta Umbria shipyard at Huelva in Spain, El Galeón was launched 2009 and has since covered more than 70,000 nautical miles around the world's oceans, visited ports in four continents, participated in many cultural projects, and has been visited by thousands of visitors at over a hundred ports all over the world.

About Schooner "Pascual Flores"

Many of the large ships built at the time were made by Torrevieja shipwrights such as Antonio Marí, known as “the storm”, builders of the famous schooner Pascual Flores in 1917, among other ships.

In its early years, the pailebote was dedicated to the export of fruit, salt and general cargo, both in Mediterranean ports and anchorages and on the North and West coasts of Africa. Over the years, the vessel changed ownership and underwent significant modifications to its structure, ending her days in England.

In order to honour the memory of this thriving seamanship, the Torrevieja City Council purchased the Pascual Flores, which was in very poor condition in the port of Milford Haven, in 1999. The goal was to convert it into a symbol of Torrevieja’s seafaring character and the flagship of the city.
