A "must" for submarine lovers when you go to the beautiful Cartagena city. Very interesting and even you can see the inside through 2 small portholes in the starboard side hull.
You can see in the shot the rudder blade, the two shafts/propellers and the vertical aft propeller. To the left of the shot one brass SCHWARTZKOPFF original torpedo.
This design was well ahead of its time ( year 1888 ) with several inventions used in submarines today.
