Christopher Columbus' Santa María Model

The Santa María ship is central to the history of Christopher Columbus' voyages. It was one of the three ships of Christopher Columbus. The three, La Pinta, La Niña, and the Santa María ships. The Santa María was the largest of the three vessels and played a key role during the 1492 voyage that culminated in the discovery of the New World. In August 1492, this Santa María ship, and Columbus, departed from Spain to arrive in America in October of the same year.

The importance of the Santa María ship lies in its role in this historic voyage that opened the doors to the exploration and colonization of America, changing the course of world history. The Santa María ship of Christopher Columbus is remembered not only for its journey but also for the legacy it left in expanding the geographical and cultural boundaries of the time.

History of Christopher Columbus Ship Santa Maria

The Santa María Ship departed from the port of Palos de la Frontera in Spain on August 3, 1492, under Columbus' command. This voyage marked the beginning of European exploration of the American continent.

The Santa María was a nao, a type of robust ship suitable for long sea voyages. During the journey, Columbus and his crew faced numerous challenges, including storms and the uncertainty of navigating towards unknown lands. Finally, on October 12, 1492, they sighted land, arriving at an island in what we now know as the Bahamas. This event is considered one of the most significant moments in history, as it opened the door to the exploration and colonization of the New World.

Unfortunately, the Santa María did not complete the return journey to Spain. On December 25, 1492, it ran aground on a sandbank off the coast of what is now Haiti. The crew used the remains of the ship to build a fort called La Navidad, where some sailors stayed while Columbus returned to Spain with the news of the discovery.

The Santa María, despite its tragic end, remains a symbol of the age of exploration and the adventurous spirit that characterized the Renaissance. 

How big was the Santa Maria ship?

The Santa María was about 70 feet (21 meters) long and 25 feet (7.6 meters) wide. It had a draft of around 6 feet (1.8 meters) and a tonnage of about 100 tons. It was the largest of Columbus's three ships and carried a crew of around 40 men.
