KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Replicas of two of Christopher Columbus’ ships will visit Knoxville on Oct. 25.

The “Nina” and “Pinta” will be docked at Calhoun’s Restaurant, 400 Neyland Drive, until their departure on Nov. 6.

The “Nina” was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.”

The “Pinta” was built in Brazil to accompany the “Nina” on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel. Historians consider the original Pinta the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century, an event spokesman said.

Both ships will tour together as a new and enhanced “sailing museum” for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the “caravel,” a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers.
 
While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.

Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $6 for students (ages 5-16), and free for younger children.
 
The ships will be open every day from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. No reservations necessary.

For more information, visit TheNina.com, or call 787-672-2152.
