  • Beautiful and curious reproductions of the carabellas that discovered America. All three can be accessed for a very small price. It's funny to watch.

  • Since we live nearby, we often visit the Carabelas with our guests. We find the facility very imaginatively designed, including the reconstructed Caribbean island where the ships landed. The ascent of the 3 ships, which have just been renovated, is interesting and encourages you to learn more about the voyages of these sailors. It would be nice if the film, which fascinates me personally, was accompanied in a little slower Spanish and possibly in English....

  • The absolute must have when you go holiday with children. It gives them unique opportunity to see, touch and feel Columb's ships replica, learn about his travels and discoveries.
  • Definitely worth a visit. I must congratulate the museum curators for the wonderful replica vessels that are the main attraction, but also for the beautifully presented museum and video, explaining Columbus's difficulties in sponsoring the initial journey and a brief description of the amazing journey itself. There is also a nice cafe offering hot and cold food and drinks.
