Description

Santa Maria was Christopher Columbus' flagship sailing ship for India. The sailing ship was built in the 15th century in Spain (the exact year of construction is unknown) The original name of the ship is La Gallena. The karak was 22 to 36 meters long and its displacement was about 200 tons. The crew consisted of nearly 40 sailors. Karaka could be used as a merchant or war ship, e.g. to defend against pirates marauding on the coastal waters at that time. Santa Maria ran aground in a storm off the northern coast of Haiti on December 25, 1942. The karaka was damaged so much that Columbus abandoned the ship. Since the Pinta and Nina were too small to take the Santa Mari crew, the settlement of La Navidad was built on the coast. The crew used part of the abandoned, abandoned sailing ship to build the fort. The small settlement would remain on the island until Columbus' return from Spain.

Where is Santa Maria today?

The Santa Maria wreck was discovered in 2003 by a team of archaeologists. Scientists took measurements and photographic documentation. While there was no absolute certainty that it was the remains of the vessel sought, more than 400 more locations around the northern coast of Haiti were checked, which could indicate the presence of the remains of the vessel. The found wreck lies on the northern coast of Haiti at a depth of 3-4.5 m. There are many indications that it is a Santa Maria wreck, but there is still no irrefutable evidence that would allow us to be 100% sure that it is a Columbus Santa Maria caraca. Further excavations are planned, which may allow for the final confirmation of the discovery of the legendary ship. The model of the Santa Maria ship was developed based on the findings of historians.
