Replica 16th-century Spanish ship visits Port of Rochester through Monday
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – A 16th-century Spanish tall ship was at the Port of Rochester on Saturday and Sunday. The Nao Trinidad, is a replica of the captain ship of what was called the Armada del Maluco (1519-1522), commanded by Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan.
The life-size replica weighs 200 tons, is over 95 feet long, and has four masts, five sails, and five decks. In its long journey through sea, the ship sails as a floating museum of Spanish maritime heritage, and has visited dozens of ports in Spain, Mexico, the United States, and Europe.
Monday is the last opportunity to tour the ship before it begins its journey down the east coast. It will be open from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., and then from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m.
