  • Place that recreates and represents the ships of the caravels. Very good the Grand staging of boats as well as some characters, sailors and users of these.

  • We liked very much, we perhaps least hoped by criticisms of friends, but in addition to interesting educational and very enjoyable it is. Boats are very accomplished and you can stroll and visit them and imagine the mode of travel at that time.

  • It is curious for your recreation natural size of three boats that accompanied Columbus on his voyage of discovery. You can visit inside, if as a recreated village to its around. You can learn more of the history with the corresponding guidelines. Documentaries are also projected. Located near the monastery of la Rabida, Huelva V Centennial Auditorium and must-see.

  • Unbelievable place! Reconstruction of 3 ships Christopher Columbus used in his first travel to discover indies and we all know how this ended up! THE Very Place Christopher Columbus and his brill crew set sail for the very first time for the reaches of India only to find impoverished - to the point (of his/their view) of being naked - people. Feeling lost and down they did not even realised they have found the New World. Knowing all this from school does not compare to visit The Muelle de las Carabelas to bring it all in their lives perspective. We are talking a waterfront exhibition with life-size exact replicas of Columbus's three ships: the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa María, built for the 500th anniversary celebrations in 1992. AWESOME!!!Not only can you walk on the ships but also see the village in which they prepared for the long journey. Very interesting and interacting!
