The discovery of America museum
This colonial-style mansion in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria’s old town in north Gran Canaria is known as the Casa de Colón (Columbus’ House). Open to the public every day it contains three rooms featuring exhibits about the history of the Canary Islands and their relationship with Americas. Its the best place to learn about both the pre-Hispanic culture of the Canaries and the Americas before the arrival of the Europeans and about Columbus and other explorers’ journeys of discovery across the ocean.
The palace that hosted Columbus
The mansion belonged to the first governors of Gran Canaria and was where Columbus stayed during his stops in the Canary Islands on his way to the Americas. The building and its interior courtyards alone, icons of Vegueta old town, make it a must see on any trip to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
