Andalusian, who visited America before Christopher Columbus???
Khashkhash bin Said was an Arab sailor with the rank of Prince of the Sea.
He gathered a group of Andalusian men, prepared boats and prepared them with month’s supplies,
then sailed them in the sea of darkness (the Atlantic Ocean) to the unknown land (the continent of America),
then they returned loaded with precious treasures. That was in 889 AD, 600 years before Christopher Columbus.
Unfortunately, history only mentions the latter.
