St. Augustine is one of only four Florida port stops for the Viva Florida 500 Voyage of El Galeón as it sails a historic route similar to Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León’s 500 years ago.

The ship set sail from Puerto Rico on April 1 and will spend 12 days in St. Augustine — May 23 through June 3.

El Galeón is a 170-foot, 495-ton, authentic wooden replica of a galleon that was part of Spain’s West Indies fleet.
