The Santa Ana was built at El-Ferrol (Spain) in 1774. She was the prototype of a series of 8 ships and carried 112 guns. In Trafalgar (1805), she fought against the Royal Sovereign. After more than 3 hours of fighting, with over 100 men killed, her rigging destroyed and surrounded by many British ships, she surrendered.
