Description

Set off by coach for a guided visit of the Rábida Monastery. Christopher Columbus was welcomed here by Brother Juan Perez who gave him hospitality. This monastery was one of only two or three in the world where navigation based on the stars (Celestial Navigation) was studied. Christopher Columbus stopped here before he set off for America. Then you will visit the Harbour of the Caravels where you will be able to see the replicas of Christopher Columbus’s ships, the Pinta, the Niña and the Santa Maria, with which he discovered America in 1492. Return on board.
