The San Felipe, launched in 1690, was one of the most beautiful Spanish galleons of the XVII century. She was the lead ship of the famous Spanish Armada. The San Felipe displaced more than 1000 tons and was armed with 96 cannons, enabling her to take on the most formidable ships in the French and British navies. San Felipe’s role in the fight against Britain and France was to aid in the defense of Spanish settlements and harbors while transporting goods, and also to safeguard the hazardous journey back to the Spanish ports from these colonies. In 1705, she participated in a furious and heroic battle between 12 Spanish ships and 35 British ships. Captured by an English ship, but so badly damaged that she could not be salvaged, the San Felipe capsized, plummeting to the depths of the sea with several tons of gold on board.
