KNOW MORE ABOUT THE SPANISH SHIP SANTISIMA TRINIDAD

The Santisima Trinidad (also known as Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad) was a Spanish ship with 120 guns at it’s launch and extended to 140 guns later. She was the largest ship of her time, so she received the nickname of El Escorial de los Mares (The palace of the Seas), and was one of the few line ships of four bridges that existed.

Due to the Trinidads size, she was not very effective due to a lack of grace and slow navigation. The Santisima Trinidad is remembered mostly for her tragic end at the Battle of Trafalgar (October 21st, 1805). She was under the orders of the squad leader Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros and Francisco Javier de Uriarte y Borja as flag captain.

After a hard fight she was captured by the English but her crew was in poor condition with more than 200 dead and 100 injured. The English made every effort to save her and her crew going so far as to take her to the English port of Gibraltar, being towed by the frigates HMS Naiad and HMS Phoebe. However, she would finally sink on October 24th some 25 or 28 miles south of Cádiz.
