Recently while driving through the Avenida del Puerto we were surprised to see the ship in the Santo Domingo Port. Having a Spaniard in the car with us, we HAD to pull over. She was amazed, as it is a well loved icon for Spanish history, that the first time she was able to see it was in a port so far from home.
For those who don’t know, the ship is the third largest tall ship in the world, and it serves a as school ship. (you know, were the future king of Spain trained and everything).
