At Muelle de las Carabelas, see replicas of Columbus’ ships and learn about the explorer's journey to the New World.

Board the Pinta, Niña, and Santa María, which are now occasionally used in TV and film productions. Visit the medieval port city neighborhood exhibit to view how locals lived when Columbus set sail, and the Isla del Encuentro exhibit to see the world Columbus came upon when his ships landed.

  • They are a replica of the Colon as it is logical, is curious to see how they traveled before and put yourself in the place of the sailors...

  • 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!

  • Old ships that sailed to discover America 500 years ago. ..
  • A pity is the lack of cleaning and care general facilities. We went Saturday, April 9, 2016, and did not work the audiovisual room, it was closed. In the room Museum, located in the center of the room nor screen functioned. La Nao Santa María could not visit, for maintenance, with the mast removed. Despite all that, the price of admission still remain the same, not warning you previously of these deficiencies. On the tables and refrigerated display cabinets of objects, the accumulation of powder is very exaggerated. One of these cabinets had a poster of the fallen to showing Woods and wired back. I think the exploits of the discovery is that this historical place and replicas of the ships, enjoy a careful and well maintained environment. He had been visiting the area enough foreigners and felt some embarrassment.

  • Must-visit place to remember the history of the discovery of America. Need you a major renovation and one major promotion. It is a shame that public administration not devoted the resources to conserve and enhance tourism this site and others to its around.
