They are back!
This is the first time since the Battle on Manila Bay that the Spanish armada can be seen in our shores.

The Spanish frigate was provided with the customary meeting point procedure off Corregidor Island and was later escorted to its berthing area.
The event is a first for the country and the Spanish Navy warship, which has sailed off Cavite and Manila after the post-independence period.
The F-104 is an Alvaro de Bazan-class frigate, manned by more than 200 sailors and led by its Commander Antonio Gonzalez del Tanago de la Lastra.
The good will visit also serves as a confidence-building engagements between the PN and Spanish Navy personnel, such as a shipboard tour, reciprocal receptions, and friendly games.

Also the good will visit aims to develop the Philippine Navy’s cooperation with the Spanish Navy geared toward capability development.
