He landed in the Bahamas. The exact island that Columbus landed on is a matter of debate, most agree that it could have been one of: . San Salvador (called Guanahani by the native inhabitants) . Samana Cay . Plana Cay
On October 12, 1492, Columbus landed at a small island in the Bahamas, which many think was Watling Island, later renamed San Salvador Island in honor of the event.
On an island he named "San Salvador" somewhere in the modern day Bahamas. One location (Cat Island) was renamed San Salvador, but in 1925 this name was given to a different island (Watlings Island) based on the reexamination of historical evidence.
A lot of people think he landed in North America but he didn't he landed in the Caribbean.

His initial discovery was land that we now know is part of the Bahamas. He called this land "San Salvador".

On his first voyage, Columbus though he had reached the Indies, i.e. China and its outlying islands.
When Columbus landed in the New World, he landed on islands off the SE coast of North America, including several islands of the Caribbean such as Hispaniola.
Christopher Columbus died on May 20, 1506 at the age of 54, from a heart attack. He died in his home in Valladolid, Spain.. (see related questions)
Christopher Columbus first landed on an island in the Bahamas. Hecalled the island San Salvatore. He called the people Indiansbecause he thought he'd reached the West Indies.
His landing at an island in the Caribbean (the location still subject to uncertainty) was on October 12, 1492.
The exact place is in dispute, but it was somewhere in the Bahamasor the Turks and Caicos islands.
Columbus never landed in America. In 1492 he found an island in the Bahamas called Hispaniola.

spain but just because he sailed for spain does'nt mean he is from spain. (by the way he's italian):)
his second and favorite sons name was Ferdinana also known as Fernando who lived 1488-1539. his second and favorite sons name was Ferdinand also known as Fernando who lived 1488-1539
San Salvador. There is a little controversy over this, I always understood it was Puerto Rica, as it lays claim to having the oldest Governors house in the world..........
Although the land that Christopher Columbus discovered and claimedfor Spain was actually part of the "New World", he believed thatthese new lands were part of southern and eastern Asia. Even untilhis death, Columbus insisted these new lands were part of Asia,despite evidence from other European expl…orations which suggestedthese lands were actually part of the "New World".

He thought he was in India, which is why he called the native people he met Indians.
Guanahani Island --- in the now Bahammas. Most historians have agreed on Guanahani Island which today is known as Watlings Island in the Bahammas.
He mainly explored the Bahamas and found Hispaniola He always thought he landed in India. He did not discover America. Never knew that North America existed.
He thought that he had landed in India because his original mission was to retrieve spices from India.That is why Native Americans are mistakenly called Indians.
Native Americans, and their native foods, including spices that differed from those he had expected to find in "China". . Colombus brought back to Spain the previously unknown tobacco plant, the pineapple fruit, the turkey , and what became indispensable to sailors : the hammock, or rope bed.… Instead of the black pepper of the East, he found a similar condiment in the chili pepper , widely used in native cooking.

Christopher Columbus land in Spain. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Wrong Christopher Columbus was sent from Spain so he couldn't have landed there first he landed in San Salvador
Yes. In 1492 Columbus sailed across the Atlantic Ocean with three boats, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina. He and his crew were trying to find India. Where he landed was what we now call the United States of America.
One of them was his death called Veneral disease that ocured onbored from numerous starvations...................... -_- ^....^
He ultimately died of effects of venereal diseases that he acquired abroad, or from numerous different starvations.
On October 12, 1492 te crew spotted land. And that very same day they landed.
Christopher Columbus wanted to reach Asia, because of its large amounts of riches and valuable goods. Instead, he reached the West Indies, which included what is now known as Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, and so forth. Columbus refused to believe that he had landed anywhere but Asia, however.
Columbus only took 4 trips and never got further than Cuba, so he didn't find any mainland. Yet, he opened the door for others to go further and seek longer. He brought disease to the natives he met and when the New World met the Old World what had been was gone.
CC was born in the city of Genoa in the Republic of Genoa in the northern part of the Italian peninsula.
Technically the Canary Islands as the Pinta was in trouble, but officially in San Salvador (Cuba) near America. He thought he had landed in India though.
Christopher Columbus landed on North America. However, he thought it was India. That is why Native Americans were falsely called Indians.
he wasnt seeking new lands, he was searching for a rout to India that didnt take him around Africa (sailing around Africa was very dangerous)
Christopher Columbus was an Italian employed by the king and queen of Spain. In those days a person did not have citizenship in a particular country in the same way they do today.
Technically, yes - he landed in an area of what we call today The Dominican Republic, which is part of the Americas.
He believed, the world being round rather than flat, that if he sailed west he would find a short cut to reach the land of India and conduct trade with them there. Of course he found a new continent in between Europe and India.
Columbus had three ships that carried them to America. He himself was on the Santa Maria along with about 15 other crew members. All other about 40 members were divided onto the other two ships, the Pinta and the Nina.
Yes and no. Yes: He left on his first voyage to the "New World" in 1492 from Palos de la Frontera, a town located in southwestern Spain. And no: His intention was to sail to Asia, but instead he landed in the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador. And, there were people alread…y living there that called their place Guanahani. America was not called America at the time, it was given that name after the Florentine explorer Amerigo Vespucci, which was at a later date. So, technically, there was no America at the time Columbus 'discovered' it. In fact, he never set foot on American soil, not on North or South mainlands, anyway. And so the myth that Columbus discovered America is most likely false. He, instead, discovered the Caribbean Islands and Central America. It was the other explorers from other European countries that helped colonize the Americas in the years that followed. Plus: Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas. About five centuries earlier a Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson established the short-lived colony of Vinland in what is now Newfoundland, which is on the North American continent, proper. Also plus: The Bering land bridge is believed to have enabled human migration to the Americas from Asia about 20,000 years ago. So the people that Columbus encountered in 1492 had already 'discovered' it many thousands of years before he was even born. So, yes: Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain to America. But no: That is not the whole story. ( Full Answer )
if your talking about what he first discovered then it was America. He proved that the world wasn't flat by sailing where no other sailers would go.
he found the native Americans he thought he was in India so he called them Indians which is where the name came from
Not to the people who lived there. It was benifical to him, the King and Queen of Spain, and the present America.
There were no "developments". He left 39 men on the island and when he returned they were all dead. He was a failure in Spain because he didn't return with gold or a route to India and few knew he had left. He added very little knowledge to the knowledge base or maps.
He landed on one of the islands in the Bahamas and there was no country there for him to claim.
No. Hispanics are generally of a mixed decent from Spanishcolonists and Native Americans. Columbus was Italian, not Spanish.He was born in Europe and was of European descent. Although heexplored parts of the Caribbean, he never actually lived there.
No, although he did sail from Spain, on a Spanish mission. Columbus was Italian - well, Genovese, actually. Born in Genoa, in what is now Italy.
He claimed it on behalf of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella ofSpain. Then he proceeded to institute a rule of terror there asGovernor, to such an extent that the Spanish government had himarrested and brought back to Spain in chains.
Historians today mostly agree that Columbus' successes and failuresmore or less even out. First of all, his calculations about thewestward route to the Indies were totally off the mark. Heestimated that the trip would be 2-3,000 miles, while in reality itwas some 30,000 miles. By rights, he and his …shipmates should haveperished from hunger and thirst long before they got anywhere. Columbus had been warned about this, too: when he first approachedKing John of Portugal as a sponsor, the king's cartographers toldhim that he was totally mistaken: the circumference of the Earthwas exactly known, as was the location of India and China on theplanet. But Columbus wouldn't listen. He discovered the Caribean islands totally by accident, and untilhis death remained firmly convinced that they were part of theIndian coastal area. When he was appointed Governor of the island of Hispaniola, he madea total mess of it. He and his brothers were feared for theircruelty, greed and corruption - so much that the Spanish Governmenthad him arrested for 'Tyranny" and transported back to Spain inchains. He was so generally detested by other magistrates in theCaribean that when he stranded on Jamaica during his fourth trip,it took a year before he was picked up from the island by theSpanish. In later journeys, Columbus mostly discovered other Caribeanislands. He did on one trip find the coast of central America andcalculated it to be the location of the Biblical Garden of Eden. ACreationist might say: "Well, who knows?" After four trips Columbus remained in Europe, spending much of hisenergies on ligitation against the Spanish Crown for a cut of theprofits from the American colonies that he claimed had beenpromised to him. He didn't win, however. ( Full Answer )
Columbus had gone west to find a short route for the veryprofitable spice trade. He was (and remained all his life)convinced that he had reached islands off the coast of India andwas much disappointed that he nevertheless found no trace of thehoped-for spices. There was however a - fairly modest - a…mount ofgold found on the islands. Columbus had himself appointed Governorand instituted a reign of terror, robbing the islanders of everyounce of gold they had and setting them to work as forced laborersin the mines. The cruelty of his methods created such a scandal atthe Spanish court that Columbus was relieved of his Governorship,arrested and brought back to Spain in chains. ( Full Answer )
