743

Both El Galeón and Nao Victoria are together again at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina. The ships add to St. Augustine’s picturesque skyline with the tall, magnificent masts blending with the terracotta rooftops, coquina fort and historical bridge against the backdrop of the brilliant blue Florida sky.

Visitors and community residents have the opportunity to tour both historical ships. El Galeón will be in St. Augustine from Jan. 5 to July 2014. The Nao Victoria will be in St. Augustine from April 14 to May 2014.

El Galeón is a replica of the vessels that traveled the coasts of Florida between the 16th and 18th centuries, transporting men, goods, culture and ideas, creating ties between America and Europe. Nao Victoria is a replica of the first ship to successfully circumnavigate the world.
