Caravel "Santa María"

 

Although the logbook of Christopher Columbus is said that the "Santa Maria" was a caravel and speaks of the "three ships," however, was the largest of the three and several times it is defined as a Carabela Santa maría"nao".


Thus the word "Nao" could have different concepts, while a first meaning can only define a ship, a second concept can mean a "ratchet" which was a great ship sailing round high board that was dedicated to transportation heavy loads over long distances.


But what can be no doubt that the original order to the municipalities of "the sea of ​​Andalusia" to Columbus three ships to be rented and ordered to Diego Rodríguez Prieto, given in Granada on April 30, 1492 . Similarly Francisco Lopez de Gomara and Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo talked to the Santa Maria was a caravel.


Nor hayduda about the Holy Mary was the "flagship" during the first voyage of Columbus, where Christopher Columbus traveled and therefore captained the expedition.
