While eating, one can see a few meters from the restaurant to the submarine "Abtao" which currently functions as a museum. In the background you can see the large ships anchored in the port of Callao, as well as the boats that enter and leave the port. We are a step away from the Real Felipe Fortress, the Yacht Club de la Punta, the traditional boardwalk and the beautiful beaches of La Punta. An ideal opportunity to combine a delicious lunch with a walk to the various attractions of the place.
DID YOU KNOW ...
The port of Callao was not founded by the Spaniards, but it is a natural port that had been used since pre-Inca times. Due to its location and excellent characteristics, it later became the main port of Spanish America during the colonial era.
The submarine Abtao was launched into the water on October 27, 1953 in the port of New London, Connecticut, U.S.A. and baptized with the name of BAP TIBURON. Later it was changed its name in Peru to BAP ABTAO in homage to one of the most important battles in the history of our country.
The Real Felipe fortress was built to defend the port of Callao from the constant attacks of pirates as renowned as the Englishman Francis Drake and the Dutch corsair Jacobo Clerck nicknamed L'Hermite.
Between the years of 1850 and 1851 the Lima-Callao railway began to operate, the first in South America, which left the same port and went up the Colonial avenue to San Martin Square itself.
The port of Callao currently mobilizes almost 1.5 million containers per year.
