Photographer's Note

A genuinely enjoyable museum in Barcelona is the Maritime Museum located at the bottom of the Ramblas and next to the waterfront. Within the cavernous Gothic structure dating back to the 13th-century, a treasure trove of maps, weapons, paintings, and models of galleons are on display. This photo is no more than a snapshot with my iPhone, but it is sharp enough to reveal the textures of the model galleon showing a ship from the 15-16th centuries. I imagine Christopher Columbus might have sailed in a ship like this, although with its many canons, this is clearly a warship.
