A FULL-SIZE replica of the Nao Victoria (the good ship Victoria,) recently visited Adra port.
The Nao Victoria was the first ship to successfully circumnavigate the world, part of a Spanish expedition between 1519 and 1522 that was commanded by Ferdinand Magellan and, after his death during the voyage, by Juan Sebastián Elcano.
There was a €5 charge for adults and €3 for children to explore the ship’s three decks on a self-guided tour where information panels explained the historic and social context of the world’s greatest maritime feat.
