This is a painting of him..

Three ships set sail together including the Santa Maria, Pinta, and the Nina. These ships were all caravels which is a small, fast Spainish or Portuguese sailing ship used in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries.

Christopher Columbus was from Italy but explored for Spain.

Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. His parents were Domenico Colombo and Susanna Fontanarossa.
