Wrong place for the city[edit]

"They begin to build the city of San Salvador and eventually manage to hoist the town bell into its tower, symbolising the arrival of Christianity in the New World." - This is incorrect, both historically and in the film. Columbus never founded a city on San Salvador. The city he founded in the film and in history is La Isabela, on Hispaniola. SchnitteUK (talk) 17:39, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Historical accuracy[edit]

I think there should be a small section concerning the disparity between the movies depiction of Columbus and the latest historical research on his person. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:39, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Agreed. There are big discrepancies between the movie character and the real historical figure, and they should be pointed out, as the film tries to be a historical account.
