From 1938 to 1973 it was used in the Cod fishing campaigns in Newfoundland and Greenland. Between 1973 and 1979 remain moored in Lisbon until it was bought in 1979 by the Secretary of State for Fishing to become a fishing museum, but during the repairs it was noticed that the hull was in excellent condition, so it was determined that the ship should sail again, therefore it became a Portuguese Navy training ship.

Wednesday 13th. Musica Reservata de Barcelona

A unique event for lovers of early music will take place next Wednesday in the Church of Santa Maria in Mahon.

Created in 1991 this early music ensemble was founded as a vocal group with the intention of introducing the repertoire of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, paying special attention to the Spanish composers of the Siglo de Oro. The absence of a permanent conductor has allowed Musica Reservata de Barcelona to work with renowned master specialists, such as Jean-Marc Andrieu, Bart Vandewege, Peter Phillips, Andrew Carwood, Bruno Turner, Josep Vila and Mireia Barrera.
