Before TITANIC, there were the GALLEONS

Before the “TITANIC”, there were the GALLEONS, and the Filipinos were on them. And now, everyone has a chance to jump aboard a mighty ship that once ruled the world.  From October 6-9, the Philippines will host the Andalucia, a 17th century replica of a Galleon. Berthing at the Manila Harbor, guests from all over will be able to view and walk through history.
