We went primarily to get out of the chill wind but found it v interesting. Stunning building and good exhibits of Columbus voyages with some English explanations. Only 2e concession price but all... more »
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
