Visit the ship El Galeon in Sète

Sète is hosting El Galeon, a unique Spanish galleon replica ship.  The public will be able to visit it until Sunday.

El Galeon is the only navigational replica of the Spanish galleons, which for more than three centuries have made the link between Asia, America and Spain and allowed the largest trade and cultural exchanges in history. Masters of the oceans, the galleons were the pioneers of globalisation.

The public can visit the ship from Tuesday 16th to Sunday 21st April 2019 from 10am to 7pm depending on the weather conditions.
