event image
One of the most significant dates during the reign of the Catholic Monarchs was 12th October 1492 the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus.

When Christopher Columbus landed in the New World in 1492, history was made and Columbus Day was created as a public holiday for many cultures. The Bahamian culture celebrates this day and calls it Discovery Day. If National Heroes Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it is observed the following Monday and most public facilities schools, post offices, government offices, etc. are closed in its observance. A small ceremony is held in Rawson Square downtown Nassau, in honor of the Bahamian national heroes that are chosen for that year.
