The Santa Maria de Colombo

This magnificent replica of Christopher Columbus’s flagship “SANTA MARIA” was built in
Madeira island at the small fishing village of Câmara de Lobos.
Along with seven local craftsmen,Mr. Robert Wijntje, a Dutchman who has made his home in Madeira, realized his dream when he started building
the Santa Maria in July 1997. The construction took one year finishing in July 1998. In that same year the“SANTA MARIA DE COLOMBO” represented the Madeira wine at the Expo 98 in Lisbon,
where in just 25 days was visited by 97,016 people.
