The Spanish Port celebrates the French writer

So wirbt das Museum mit Jules Verne

HE WAS TWICE IN VIGO, and both times Jules Verne was passenger on a ship and something went wrong! First he had to take refuge in Vigo, after tremendous gales almost sank the vessel, the second time, some years later, the ship herself had a grave problem and had to be steered to the port. It maybe therefore, that Verne let his famous book „20.000 Leagues Under the Sea“ start in Vigo, an ideal setting for an adventure like that. And now the exhibition „The Limits of the Imagination“ at the „Marco Museum“ in this Spanish harbor covers the two stop-overs and joins the discussion about the French authors overflowing phantasy and his influence on the modern world. It’s open until September 16.
