A little bit about the Original Neo Trinidad

The nao Trinidad was the flagship of the Magellan-Elcano expedition, leading the first sailing around the world between 1519 and 1522, which was the greatest maritime feat in history. An expedition that circumnavigated the globe for the first time, opening new routes, connecting continents and oceans, and getting to know the peoples and cultures that inhabited the lands they touched along their immense journey: Brazil, Argentina, the Mariana Islands, the Philippine Islands, Indonesia, Brunei and Timor.

It set sail from Seville (Spain) on 10 August, 1519, at the head of a fleet of five ships which, following its guidance, crossed the Atlantic, sailed along the coast of South America, discovered the Strait of Magellan and crossed the Pacific Ocean for the first time in history. They reached the Mariana Islands, the Philippines and the Moluccas, where the destiny of the Flagship Trinidad would change.

After more than two years at sea and with the fatigue of sailing thousands of nautical miles, the Trinidad sprang a huge leak in its hull. This prevented its return to Spain from the Moluccas with the expedition’s only other surviving ship—its companion, the Victoria. The latter did make it home, completing the First Sailing Around the World just months later.

Meanwhile, the Trinidad was involved in the toughest incident of the voyage. With the damage repaired, it attempted to return to Spain by sailing eastward, with 54 men on board, but was defeated by strong headwinds and currents. It was forced to sail northward until it reached the 42nd parallel north, when a violent storm nearly caused its wreckage. Cold, hunger, thirst and scurvy mercilessly struck the ship and its men.

Giving up, the ship returned to the Moluccas after six months of suffering and fighting against the sea, with just 17 survivors. There, the Portuguese were waiting for them; they captured the crew and abandoned the battered ship in those waters, where, exhausted and damaged, it met its end.

Me and ropes on ships I just cannot resist taking shots of them

What interesting information you share about this beautiful boat, dear friend @tattoodjay, I love the shots you have taken, they look very good in monochrome
I appreciate that you have shared these beautiful photographs, and I take this opportunity to wish you a happy start to the week.

thanks so much and have a good week my friend

It was very interesting when I saw these photos in black and white visuals. I think Black and white photography can feel more emotional, intimate. I really enjoyed the photos you shared.

thanks yes Mono images can give a totally different feel and mood

I feel like I'm back in 1519 🙂 great story and lots of history in that ship (replica...but still!)


I loved the black and white photos of the Nao Trinidad! They are very atmospheric and evocative. The photo of the crow's nest is particularly striking. The contrast between the black and white really helps to highlight the intricate details of the ship.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Wow! These are nice shots. I was impressed with how you were able to take the first picture. The other were perfectly captured too.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Muy buenas fotografías 💯

You know, those ropes are massive and can be hard on bare hands. Can you imagine that ages ago... some of the men of the sea didn't wear gloves!!!
