History of the Arrival and when Europe learned of the discovery of America.

Martín Alonso Pinzón sailed alongside Christopher Columbus in one of the greatest adventures in history, as captain of La Pinta.

His arrival at the helm of La Pinta in Baiona anticipated that of Columbus himself on his arrival in Lisbon. Therefore, it was in Baiona when it was first known in Europe that the expedition had reached the New World. (Whatsapp coverage was scarce at the time ;-).

In this event has therefore, its origin this baionesa festivity of La Arribada.
