The 18th Century Spanish galleon discovered in Puerto Madero this past December is now open to the public. The cannons, earthenware jars and other materials will be displayed until July 5th, when the galleon will be reburied to preserve it. Archeologists estimate that the 300 year old ship sunk after carrying goods across the Atlantic during Argentina’s colonial period.

The 35 meters long walkway in a horseshoe shape allows the public to appreciate the vessel from every angle.
