  • You can feel how tough life at board Gil Eannes could be. Very well organised museum throughout the boat, fro the normal decks tothe hospital services. Well done. This is clearly a MUST DO in Viana...

  • Great historical experience. The people taking care of the boat are meticulous and friendly. Speak with them for a few minutes, and their passion for the boat will immediately transpire. All in all, great visit.
  • Very instructive visit. A Portuguese Navy Ship Hospital absolutely well preserved. I explained my kids how tough is the life on board when your working Hospital is a ship far away from all complementary and modern facilities on the ground.
