The Nao Trinidad was the flagship of what was called “Armada del Maluco” (1519-1522), 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 ship has sailed to many ports across the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic European Coast as a training vessel and floating museum.
