La Arribada


In fourteen hundred ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue. . .


The beautiful coastal city of Baiona is celebrating ¨La Arribada¨ or the anniversary of the return of the Pinta with news of the discovery of the New World in 1493.


There is a medieval fair, crafts, food in the historic center. A replica of the Pinta is at anchor in the port.


Can´t wait until we´re up there to see these things in person.

A really lovely blog entry from 2010 with more great pics.

Pics from La Voz de Galicia.

For the rest of the poem.
