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.

Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) was an Italian explorer who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, hoping to find a route to India
Christopher Columbus first landed in what is know called TheBahamas. However, he also landed in Cuba and Hispaniola.
Christopher Columbus was planning to land in West India. He did not land in West India because he landed in what is now North America. He thought that he was in West India at first so that is why he called them Indians. Their real name is Native Americans.
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..........
He landed on (and named) San Salvador where he met the taino Indians. then after that he left to explore what he thought was japan, but what really was Cuba C. Columbus first landed on an island we think near the Bahamas. There, he met two different tribes of natives, the Caribs and the Arawaks.

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.
\nThe proper way to ask this question would be, "Where did Christopher Columbus travel?" and he landed in the Indies, in Trinidad specifically.
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.
Actually, his real reason was to search for another route to Asia for spices; but in the end, he found the 'new world'...(Americas)
Americans are so ignorant, just like you, first of all their is only one America from Alaska to the south pole, you stole the name, but all of us who are born-ed in this continent are Americans, Columbus did not arrive in or at America, since the continent was named after he died, Americo Vespucci a…nd Italian Geographer new that this land mass was different from the rest of the known world, and Spain and Portugal claimed it in equal half's. the year 12th of october 1492, the place he left puerto de palos EspaÃ±a, the place he disembarked was what we know now as Haiti, not what you idiots think is America.

On October 12, 1492 te crew spotted land. And that very same day they landed.
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.
Tat he would bring back all riches that he found. Queen Isabella promiced him all the land he found would go to him and it would be owned by Christopher Columbus. (my amazing social studies teacher taught me! HE is thee best)
Christopher Columbus landed on North America. However, he thought it was India. That is why Native Americans were falsely called Indians.
He was funded by the King and Queen of France to try to make his way to India to get spices but ended up discovering the Americas
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)
Technically, yes - he landed in an area of what we call today The Dominican Republic, which is part of the Americas.
He was one of 1200 who sailed on the second expedition of Columbus on the 24th September 1493.
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
He opened the doorway for more europeans to come to the Americas and spred disease & start wars & enslave the natives.. & then turn around and act like they are the only ones that belong in the US & start kicking out people who's anceastors have been here for many thousands of years
Not to the people who lived there. It was benifical to him, the King and Queen of Spain, and the present America.
Christopher Columbus' voyages were financed by the Crown of Castile, which later became part of the Kingdom of Spain, and he sailed under the flag of that kingdom. So the lands he discovered, he discovered for Castile.
He found America first when he thought America was Asia.so he found America but he didn't mean to find 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.
Christopher Columbus landed in the West Indies. He called it itthat because he thought his in the west of India
To be true to the people who funded his expedition, Spain, he namedthe place he landed Hispania.
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.
