Artesania Latina San Juan Nepomuceno Captain’s Boat


Constructed in the shipyards of Guarnizo (Cantabria) in 1765 the San Juan Nepomuceno fulfilled different performances until 1803 and was in the control of Cosme Damián Churruca. Two years later, taking part in the Battle of Trafalgar he was severely wounded and surrounded by up to six English ships.

After the death of Churruca and his second commander the commanding officer ordered the remaining crew to surrender when surrounded by hundreds of the wounded and deceased crew on board. Captured by the Royal Navy, the San Juan Nepomuceno would be towed to Gibraltar and turned into a spot for visitors, who were able to explore.
