  • A little cultural visit and discover some data that most do not know how the supremacy of the caravelas or imagine 100 people + viberes in an nao. You have to see it, only mejoraria jn low access/directions from Huelva then enters from the port industrial zone

  • Entry costs €3.60. It is a very complete visit. In addition to exact replica of the boats that I use on his expedition Colon we can find a small Museum of navigation. An audiovisual projection about 10 minutes aprox. And by way of representation, at the stern of the naos was a Spanish village of that time and in the bow that sailors found to get to the "new world". It has a good souvenir shop. And in the interior of the enclosure a cafeteria which can tapas to round off the visit. Highly recommended.

  • To visit the boats and the feeling of those who join them before such an adventure, is an interesting and very illustrative experience for lovers of history as well as those who do not. It is a place where been recreated quite rightly, both vessels exit the originating docks, as a small recreation of what would become a new world inhabited by races unknown up to then by the old continent. Best of all is the access to the nao and two caravels to have the feel of how navigation and life on Board would be in long journey.

  • A very interactive musem to experience Colon's expedition back in 1492, it has a small collection room, a introductory film, and the three 1:1 size Carabelas, worth a visit however it's more suitable to go by car, one of the few interesting things to do in the area. Estimated visit time 1hour +.
  • Recrea a tamaño real las 3 carabelas de Cristobal Colon. Es un espacio muy ameno, bien cuidado, incluso con chiringuito. Visita obligada... El video es un poco rollo, pero para gustos...
  • Great place to see Columbus's three ships (reproductions but they have sailed the same route)and the informative visitors' centre
  • Very nice interactive museum. You can go inside the boats and get a nice feeling of the era.
  • Nice familiar trip. Nice clean and well prepared
