Prints of the time and documents found in the historical archives of the naval museum of Barcelona
allowed the reconstruction of the plans for this three-masted carrack which would be placed
between the medieval merchant ship and the galleon. Quite possibly around 1519 it took part in an
important expedition, which led Fernando Cortez to conquer Mexico.
The outer galleries, one of which is a balcony, the apartments under the small quarterdeck, the
superstructures of the decks providing the installation of awnings for protection against the sun,
clearly indicate that they were employed for the transport of passengers of high class.
