Where did Christopher Columbus establish trading post?

Christopher Columbus established a post called "La Navidad" on the island they named La EspaƱola, which today is known as Hispaniola. La Navidad was built from wood and supplies salvaged from Christopher Columbus' ship La Santa Maria, which ran into a reef, and could not be repaired. The remains of Fuerte La Navidad can still be visited on the north coat of the Dominican Republic, an hours drive West from the city of Puerto Plata.
