Reconstructions of the ships used by columbus to "discover" America. You can board them and there is a small museum and contemporary village.

This is a really a great attraction as you get to board actual replicas of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria. What is amazing is how small these ships were and how in the world they were able to take these voyages with crew, food and supplies. The harbour area around the ships were period pieces and tried to provide... More

Enjoyed our short trip to see the Columbas voyage ships. The location & layout is nice. Little disappointed that the museum had no English translation as I'm sure a lot of American tourists would be very interested in the history.

We're from the USA and wanted to see the area where Columbus started his voyage. The ships were built in 1992 for the 500-year anniversary. There isn't a guided tour so you can go onboard, take photos, etc. One ship, the Pinta, was being repaired. I thought the "dummies" were too "Disneylandish" and didn't add to the exhibit. We liked...

The ship replicas are well made and fun to stroll around. The museum might be small but we liked it. Informative though unfortunately only Spanish description. The Sunday we visited the sight we had free entry. This might have been due to some public festival there

I was unimpressed by this display. The three ships rest in a glorified puddle, with walking bridges allowing visitors to walk among them. On one side, there is a "port city" like the one that Columbus' crew would've left behind. On the other side is a childish and offensive caricature of what Columbus would've encountered in the Americas. The museum... More

We went to the stars show in August and loved it. Really funny. Don´t go expecting an expensive show, which you won´t if you take into account how cheap it is. But let the children´s laughter and the magical atmosphere take you back to your own childhood.

We had a blast here. Reconstructions of the boat Columbus sailed to the new world. You can clamber all over them, and visit reconstructions of the native villages where he landed.

I read a review of a couple of years ago and it seems the situation has not changed. This is a place which has not been improved so much to be really interesting. There is a great difference between the entrance with the small museum and the auditorium and the area where the ships are. The entrance and the museum... More

Recommended for the whole family. Interesting museum, and the replicas of the ships were excellent! Well presented displays, excellent facilities and good refreshment area. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
