    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.

  • Super closed... what a bummer should open back up next month.
  • Closed for renovation, not mentioned here. Looks like the managers don't know that Google exist.
  • 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!
