  • 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
