My second visit to Casa de Colom and I loved them both. Lovely to learn more on how America was discovered, how people lived under sails few centuries ago and how the world was divided between Spain and Portugal (you can see Treaty of Tordesillas!)....More

It's good attraction to stop by and spend some time. Trips made by Columbus are well described and mapped. Here you have good idea how he traveled and how many days he actually spend travelling. Worth a visit!

History lovers must spend a short time inside this fantastic building . It forms one of three museums in the same area and is one of the most attractive buildings in Las Palmas.

Load the local moovit app and it will show you route for bus and walking. Tells you which stop to get on and the bus numbers and counts down the stops alerting you when to alight.
