It is basic and simple but you have to see it! I gave 4 instead of 3 because it made me think about the moment in history when those men got inside those little things to face high seas!!! And when you have the opportunity to get inside and see how small is that space for 30 persons.... you think.... More

Located in a purpose built, enclosed dock on the Rio Tinto "las Carabelas" is a visitor attraction providing a fascinating insight into the first and subsequent voyages to the Americas. Central to the whole experience are life size replicas of the Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta which you can also clamber all over, so great for the kids and those... More

Not much parking in the area and the exhibit is quite small and a little kitsch! The 3 replica boats were ok to walk into and see or imagine what life on a ship could be like but the exhibits outside did not look too real but just theatrical props. I think it would be fun for families with children... More

It's a nice place with very informative panels telling the story of the journeys from Huelva to America. You will find nice places showing the presents they brought to the Indians, how they lived and additional information about the crew in the Carabelas. But undoubtedly the highlight is the 3 replicas of the original Carabelas that made the first trip... More

It provides a good size idea of the boats traveling to America by Columbus. Nevertheless some more information inside the boats and in the huts would be nice

Fantastic way to experience the types of ships used by Columbus and his crews. Brought the voyages they made feel more real and even more impressive.

It is a delightful exposition made with the exact replicas of the boats that discovered America. The boats are operational and still floating. The Pear is the exact place where Columbus set sail for he’s first voyage to the Americas, so this is a very symbolic a mystic place. There is a Small restaurant where you can have a meal... More

For me this wasn't worth a special trip but it wasn't awful. The ships are pretty basic and my favorite part was the video about Christopher Columbus told from the Spanish perspective. This explained a lot about why Spanish people are so proud of Columbus.
