Candelaria is a Spanish bomb vessel. They were used to lob ordinance over fortifications using large mortors.  This solved the problem of attacking forts with ship guns which shot fairly horizontally.  It meant that shots from ships guns primarily hit the fort walls, which in some cases could be 3 yards thick.
