Christopher Columbus spend some days in paradisiacal Porto Santo Island. To celebrate his passage, Vila Baleira becomes a stage during this weekend: the replica of the Santa Maria ship arrives at the beach with the Genoese navigator and it’s entourage. The landing is made in small boats and the festival consists of a procession through the main streets of the city,  a sixteenth-century market, exhibitions, theatre, medieval music and dances and children’s games that will bring the spirit of that time. Don’t miss out this event!
