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.

The Santa Maria, Pinta and Nina are the three caravels in which Columbus sailed to the "Indies" (thinking he would travel around the world and hit India from the west. Built for the 500th anniversary (1992), they show the bravery of these sailors.

This spot is a great place for finding out more about the discovery of America by Critopher Columbus, however it would be a way more impressive experience if you can read Spanish. Just the tickets board display some words in English, the rest is all written in the local language. Nevertheless, it's great to be in the 3 caravel replicas,... More

We we driving past Huelva and decided to take a detour to see the Wharf of the Caravels. It was worth a visit if only to show the children what kind of ships Columbus used to sail into the ocean in hopes of finding the New World. Good experience overall.

When you are in Huelva anyway, this is a nice place to visit. As Cristóbal Colon is the one big hero the city has they rebuild the ships he used to get to America. You can combine it with a visit of the Rabida Monastery where Colon stayed.

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
