Voyages of Columbus

After spending almost a week in Portugal, Columbus returned to Spain. He discovered Santo Domingo a Cuba, although he wanted to sail to India. The largest of his three ships, Santa Maria, run aground and had to be abandoned. Columbus also noticed the difference between magnetic and geodetic north, although he did not discover it first.
