1 FLORIDA 500 YEARS
On April 2, 1513 Juan Ponce de LeĂłn reached the land he called Florida. So began 500 years of Florida history, of recognition, exploration, and creation of new settlements.Years later, in 1565, Pedro MenĂŠndez de AvilĂŠs establishes on these lands the oldest city in the United States, St.Augustine. Naos and galleons played leading roles in these events.
a dozen of historical sailing or non-sailing ships have been built; more than 70.000 traveled miles with the sailing ones; more than 25 countries of 4 continents visited; and more than 9 million visitors received are a clear evidence of the professionalism, rigor and guaranteed success that you can get from Nao Victoria Foundation in these kind of projects.

Both boats will depart from Spain and cross the Atlantic Ocean to reach Puerto Rico, where Juan Ponce de LeĂłn began his expedition, and then continue the crossing to the coasts of Florida. ACTIVITIES TO BE PERFORMED DURING THE CROSSING The Nao and the Galleon will be considered of an extraordinary interest and a great attraction at every port, because of their unmistakable figures and status as diplomatic vessels. Promotional events, public visits, communication and media events and institutional acts will be organized at the different ports. During the long ocean crossings, the Nao and Galleon will develop an important program of activities related to scientific research and social nature. There will be studies and projects carried out in the following areas: Marine Environment, Biodiversity, and Environmental Sciences. During the voyage, TV recording devices could be used to follow the journey onboard the two boats, conducting workshops on various aspects of the history of these voyages: diet, sailing exercises, life onboard, health, etcâ€Ś

The presence of the Nao and the Galleon at east coast cities will be a great attraction in what will be the most important exposition ever.Visitors will be allowed to get on board an exact replica of the first vessels to sail along trade routes and perform cultural and international exchanges between Florida and Spain. Singularity, symbolism, mobility and versatility. These are just a few attributes of these vessels' replicas, and these attributes will surely turn them into unique, extremely attractive resources.
