  • It seems to me a wonderful place both by its history and by its environment. With some very interesting replicas of the three caravels of the voyage of Columbus

  • They are reforming it. The area isn't bad to give a walk and very beautiful views. Something old skulls.

  • It is a must visit for part of the history of the world. See how Columbus was able to cross the Atlantic Ocean in this boat is at least remarkable. Very curious the caravels. To visit at least once in life.

  • 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!
