Historical context

Starting in 1978, the archaeologists of Canada Parks have digged up and measured piece by piece the San Juan, trying to get all the data possible.  In this way the San Juan is becoming the best know cargo ship of her time. 

Heritage valorization

The archaeological data resulting from the San Juan, other wrecks, and findings of the same area of Red Bay are shown now in the museum "National historic Site of Red Bay".

San Juan Network

Through an agreement between Canada Parks and the coproducers of the San Juan (Foundation Donostia/ San Sebastián 2016 ), Albaola has developed exact plans of the ship based off the archaeological data. This will make the construction of the replica a pioneering and scientific project.
