Spanish Galleon Andalucia

Updated on June 27, 2011

The Spanish Galleon Andalucia visited the beautiful island of bohol from October 23-26,2010. I was one of the fortunate people who saw it up close and even explored its decks and rooms. This ship is just a replica built to "reminisce" the trade path of the Spanish Galleon era..

Andalucia is a replica of the 17th century galleon ship from Spain that plied the Manila-Acapulco trade route, and is on a 3-day visit in Bohol for the celebration of "Dia del Galeon" or "Galleon Day" which aims on adding a new dimension to the galleon trade through highlighting the role of the Filipinos during the maritime trade period, as well as emphasizing indigenous art forms and heritage.

Galeon Andalucia is the centerpiece of the Dia Del Galeon festival in the Philippines, which started on 21 September 2010. The festival is organized by the NCCA and the city government of Manila in commemoration of the 250 years of the Galleon Trade (1565-1815).

The Dia Del Galeon showcased an exchange of Spanish and Filipino culture, with exhibits, workshops, cultural performances, and educational discussions regarding the Galleon Trade.
