  • Martín Alonso Pinzón (1441-1493) and Vicente Yáñez Pinzón (1462-1515). These Spanish sailing brothers were also shipbuilders and explorers. They sailed with Christopher Columbus to the New World in 1492, Martín as captain of La Pinta and Vicente as captain of La Niña.
  • Rodrigo de Triana (1469-Unknown). He is believed to have been the first European to see America since Leif Ericson.
  • 5 Sailors. Columbus and his captains, obviously, could hardly have accomplished such a feat without the help of their sailors. It is estimated that in such a great endeavor to find new sea routes through the West to the East Indies, between 90 and 120 sailors were needed.

Speaking about the identities of the figurines, below we highlight who makes up this wonderful set of caravels and galleons figures. Christopher Columbus, Juan de la Cosa, Martín Alonso Pinzón, Vicente Yáñez Pinzón, Rodrigo de Triana and five sailors. Let’s know a little more about these legendary men of the sea and their subordinates.

  • Christopher Columbus (1451-1506): He was an Italian explorer and colonizer who completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean thus opening the New World to conquest. Columbus left Castile in August 1492 with three small ships – La Niña, La Pinta, and La Santa Maria – in order to find a way west to the East Indies to profit from the spice trade. But instead, on October 12 of that same year, he came across the land of one of the islands of the Bahamas. Later, he came across different and numerous islands until he decided to establish a colony in what is now known as Haiti, the first European settlement in America after the arrival of the Vikings five hundred years earlier, according to the latest studies.
  • Juan de la Cosa (1450-1510): He was a Castilian navigator and cartographer, known for designing the oldest European map of the world by including the territories of the Americas. De la Cosa was the captain and owner of the Santa María, a vessel in which Christopher Columbus traveled in the Discovery of America, the West Indies.
