    525 years ago on this date (Aug 3, 1492), Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus) set sail from Palos de Frontera (near Huelva) with three ships: the Santa Maria, Pinta and Niña. His goal was to try and find a faster route to the far East. Instead he discovered a route to the "New World", the Americas.
    We arrived just in time for the party! Los Colombinos. We went to:
    • La Rabida Monestary - Columbus stayed here for two years, planning his trip
    • Muelle de las Carabelas (Wharf of caravels) - life size models of the Santa Maria, Pinta and Niña.
    • Las Marismas de Odiel (Marshes) - we spotted lots of flamingos and some spoonbills
    • Muelle Rio Tinto - Docks used by the mining company that was founded here, that look like the Eiffel Tower on it's side in the water.
    • Los Colombinos - live flamenco music and dancing, local food (chocos) and a giant fair going late into the night
