Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Canary Islands / Gran Canaria / Las Palmas de Gran Canaria / Casa de Colon
A compelling stop for history buffs, Casa de Colon houses a museum, a library, and a specialized studies center. Christopher Columbus visited this spot in 1492 to ask for money to repair his ship La Pinta. Find information about Columbus’ travels in the museum, along with displays on the Canary Islands and pre-Columbian America. Also of interest are the exhibits on European painting over the centuries and Amazonian cultural artifacts. Plan your visit to Casa de Colon and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Las Palmas de Gran Canaria road trip site.

This is the house that Columbus stayed in when he made his journey to the new world. It has been converted into a museum about the Age of Discovery and it was interesting to learn more about how the Canary Islands tied into the discovery and trips to the New World. I would recommend a visit (they also have two parrots as pets that are just hanging around the museum).
Great and cheap Sightseeing in Las Palmas. You cant only see there the History of Columbus but also the History of Las Palmad and the whole Isle!!! 4 Euros for 1 Adult and 2 Euros for a Student is also real cheap. There are small ships and also paintings/potrayals. On the other hand there are sculptures and old routes
