What is Atyla ship?

A unique ship from Spain that sails around the world

Atyla is a classic sailing vessel built between Soria and Vizcaya in the 80s. It was built following the designs of the ships in the XVIII century. Its history is remarkable, check it out here.

Today, Atyla is the only Spanish wooden ship that regularly participates in international regattas of tall ships and sail training ships. In these regattas, Atyla often receives the prize for the most international crew.

Atyla has been all around Europe, and as far as Russia and Canada in the last 6 years. All of this happens as a charity foundation that promotes life skills like emotional intelligence and intercultural communication.
