After walking down the harbour we stumbled across this rather impressive looking wooden Galleon. The Neptune. From the outside the sheer size of the ship is amazing and we did think that this was some sort of reference to one of Christopher Columbus' ships. However,...More

Don't waste your time! Not worth it - even if it were free. Looks good from the harbor but that where it ends. The ship is in deplorable and run down condition. Watch your step, you might fall through the deck. Rotten wood, plywood patches...More

The vessel is in overall poor conditions, although it can effectively impress children as the "pirates Galeon". Nothing at all to see onboard, furniture and cannongun replicas are in poor conditions. 4€ for children (5 yrs) and 6€ for adults is a bit above due,...More

It's mostly plastic and in need of closing down for health and safety reasons, the floor boards are in a poor state and all the fire extinguishers are empty,rusty and would not put out a cigarette. What a waste of €20 don't go seriously it's...More

In the old harbour, this boat is hard to miss, it is massive. Unfortunately there is a lot of work needed on it and although some restoration work has been started there is a lot that needs doing. When you stand on the harbour next...More

It was the official vessel used in the Roman Polanski film, built in the 90s. Enjoy to take photos of the ship.

I just loved this Spanish galleon replica! It stands at the center of the harbor and catches your eye immediately! Getting on board, walking around its deck and below it with the sea all around you is really nice! An attraction both children and grown...More

From a distance it looks impressive due to its size and rigging. However, as you get closer there are large pieces of timber (plywood) that have clearly rotted and fallen away to leave the vessel looking dilapidated. Oviously nobody has bothered to replace any of...More

Where to start? It first uses the fact that Columbus was from genoa to lure you into believing that this is a working replica of his ships. Once inside the 62 meter boat, it's disappointing tonnage and sail length, becomes ever more obvious. There are...More
