Discover La Pinta, a wooden model, the fastest of the three caravels used by Christopher Columbus on the first voyage to the New World in 1492. Built in the shipyards of Palos de la Frontera a few years before the voyage, it was the fastest of the three boats and it often had to wait for the other two.

The expedition with the three ships departed from Puerto de Palos to the Canary Islands on August 3, 1492. The sail and the rudder of La Pinta were repaired on this scale, and finally departed to the New World on 6 September. It was in October 12th when the famous Rodrigo de Triana cried “Land hot!”, and it was heard from La Pinta’s ship. Later La Pinta would be the first one to arrive at an European port, reaching Bayona 1 of March of 1493.
