"The Nina"

A replica of the Nina was on display for three days at Centennial Park

                     The original Niņa, Pinta, and Santa Maria used by Christopher Columbus
on his first voyage across the Atlantic were common trading vessels. The Santa Maria which Columbus never liked, ran aground and sank on Christmas Eve 1492 in Hispaniola (now Cap Haitien). She was a Nao, a type of cargo vessel. The Niņa and Pinta were Caravels which were
used by explorers during the Age of Discovery. The Pinta returned home and disappeared from History without a trace, but the Niņa, now there's a woman with a past.
