A stunning spectacle of two Spanish tall ships visiting Plymouth next month promises to be one of the city’s seafaring highlights of the year.

EI Galeón Andalucía and Pascual Flores will visit the city’s historic waterfront for over 4 days and docking at the Barbican landing stage.

Westward Shipping News captured the grand entrance of the EI Galeón Andalucía last September on our live 24 hour webcam, when the unique five-deck floating museum made its way across the Sound.

The Pascual Flores, is a three-masted schooner, and built in Torrevieja in 1907, and restored to its former glory after a chequered history, and now tours across Spain and Europe.
