At three entrances of the town of Palos de la Frontera are metal replica's of the three ships of Columbus' fleet.
- The Santa Maria at the north entrance, Calle Cristobal Colón. Only the soccle is left. The ship has gone. (Photo to the right).
- The Pinta at the south entrance, Avenida de America.
- The Niña at the east entrance, Calle Juan de la Cosa. With my sister Riet on the photo.
A comparable ship is placed in Niebla, on the road to Palos de la Frontera (or is this half of the Palos ship Santa Maria?).
I have found no information about these ships. They seem to be older than 1992.
