HISTORY OF SANTA MARIA CARAVEL: BUILD YOUR MODEL
Discover the Santa Maria, wooden model of the biggest and leader of the three caravels used by Christopher Columbus in the first voyage to the New World in 1492. Built in the shipyards of Colindres, would be the unique ship of the expedition not returned from the voyage after boarding north of the island of La Española.
The expedition left the Port of Palos the 3 of August of 1492 captained by the Santa Maria. After the discovery the bad fortune made it embark at the maximum moment of the maximum tide of that year to the north of Haiti: quickly understood that it would be impossible to save the ship after discovering that the water level had lowered about 10 centimeters while the crew was alerted and the first orders were given. With the cargo and part of the wood of the ship it was constructed the first European settlement in America.
