SHANGHAI is the destination for a replica 17th century galleon named ‘Andalucia’.

The 52-metre Spanish Nao ship set off from Las Delicias dock in Sevilla on Sunday.

Launched in Punta Umbria in Huelva last December by the Nao Victoria Foundation it will travel to the Universal Exhibition in Shanghai.

For nearly three hundred years the vessels were traded between Spain, America and Asia.

The crew of 40 will stop at Cádiz and Málaga before its long-haul trip to China, via Malta and Haifa.
