“A block south of Plaza de la Cibeles, this museum will appeal to those who always wondered what the Spanish Armada really looked like. On display are quite extraordinary models of ships from the earliest days of Spain’s maritime history to the 20th century. Lovers of antique maps will also find plenty of interest, especially Juan de la Cosa’s parchment map of the known world, put together in 1500. The accuracy of Europe and Africa is astounding, and it’s supposedly the first map to show the Americas. Also of interest is the wall-sized map showing Spanish maritime journeys of discovery from the 15th to 18th centuries. Statue of Don Blas de Lezo (3 February 1689 – 7 September 1741) one the Greatest Admirals of all time and unfortunately one of the most unknown Spanish heroes well deserves a visit - it is located at Plaza de Colon. ”
