Description:

Built complete by hand and without the use of power tools, the Ni±a is the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built, as stated in Archaeology Magazine. The craftsmanship of construction and the details in the rigging make it a truly fascinating visit back to the Age of Discovery. The Ni±a was used in the production of the film 1492, starring Gerard Depardieu and directed by Ridley Scott. The ship will be docked in S.B. through November 30.
