The renovated galleon La Pepa operates as an interpretation centre for the Spanish Constitution of 1812. The main mission of the vessel, formerly called the Andalucía, is to raise awareness of the basic tenets of the constitution signed in Cadiz in 1812.

La Pepa visited Bilbao in 2011 as part of the lead-up to the celebration of the bicentenary of that constitution, and received huge numbers of visitors.
