The great success that followed the research, development and multidisciplinary diffusion carried out during the great deed of a round-the-world trip sailing in a replica of a 16th century ship (Nao Victoria Project 2004-2006), encouraged a group of promoters, commanded by D. Juan Miguel Salas Tornero and supported by institutions such as the Spanish Government, the Autonomous Government of Andalusia and the Businessmen's Association to continue the work already underway. The Nao Foundation is a non-profit entity which main aim is to continue with the research projects and to spread awareness of heritage, science, history and maritime culture across the world.
