Between 1492 and 1503, Columbus completed four round-trip voyages
between Spain and the Americas, all of them under the sponsorship of the
Crown of Castile. These voyages marked the beginning of the European
exploration and colonization of the American continents, and are thus of
enormous significance in Western history. FIRST VOYAGE :
On the evening of 3 August 1492, Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera with three ships; one larger carrack, Santa Maria, nicknamed Gallega (the Galician), and two smaller caravels, Pinta (the Painted) and Santa Clara, nicknamed Niño after her owner Juan Niño of Moguer.
