Interesting place

The Christopher Columbus House-Museum is located in front of the cathedral of Santa Ana in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, in the historical neighborhood of Vegueta. It is believed that in this place it is believed that Columbus stayed when he visited the Canary Islands. Since the Canary Islands where on the route to America, they offered a stopover for sailors before commencing the hard transatlantic navigation.

The entrance to the museum is free of charge. It is a beautiful colonial house, with wood balconies, tile roofs and white walls. Inside there is an interesting part about the evolution of maps and navigation tools. You can see how the maps were modified over centuries due to the conquests and advances in geography and astronomy.

The other part shows Columbus’ multiple voyages, and then there are maps of colonization of the new world and something about the history of Las Palmas. The works of art come from the pre-Columbian cultures, such as the Aztecs, Mayans, etc. It is an interesting place.

Coln residence

Columbus was staying at this beautiful home before sailing to America permanently, hence the historical importance of the building, almost an entire city block, which now houses a museum, a library and a Columbian Studies Centre specializes in everything related to colonization of America. It is perhaps the best kept and beautiful area of ​​the historic district of Vegueta.

Residencia de colón

Colón estuvo alojado en esta espléndida vivienda antes de zarpar definitivamente hacia América, de ahí la importancia histórica del edificio, casi una manzana entera, que ahora alberga un Museo, una Biblioteca Colombina y un Centro de Estudios especializado en todo lo que concierne a la colonización de América.

Es quizás la zona mejor cuidada y bella del barrio histórico de Vegueta.

La Casa de Colón is a beautiful Canarian house, certainly one of the oldest buildings in Las Palmas, which has the distinction of hosting three times before Columbus's transatlantic flights between the Canary Islands and the New World. I have not seen the Casa de Colon version museum, but Congress release. We were a hundred people dining in this mythical place, between the beautiful columns and outdoors, since 3 yard of the house are open. Exclusive service organized by the city of Las Palmas for a tourism conference, I do not think this is common. It was superb. Anyway, I can only recommend you to visit this beautiful place, a haven of peace when visiting the old city of Las Palmas.

La Casa de Colón est une magnifique maison canarienne, certainement l'un des plus vieux bâtiments de Las Palmas, qui a la particularité d'avoir accueilli 3 fois Christophe Colomb avant ses voyages transatlantiques entre les Canaries et le Nouveau Monde.

Je n'ai pas vu la Casa de Colon en version musée, mais en version congrès. Nous étions une centaine de personnes à diner dans ce lieu mythique, entre les belles colonnes et à l'air libre, puisque les 3 cour de la maison sont à ciel ouvert. Prestation exclusive organisée par la ville de Las Palmas pour un congrès tourisme, je ne crois pas que ce soit courant. C'était superbe.

Bref je ne peux que vous recommander de visiter ce lieu superbe, un havre de paix lorsqu'on visite la vieille ville de Las Palmas.

It is a few meters from the Plaza de San Antonio Abad and behind the Cathedral. Columbian Library as stated on its cover. Both inside and outside you can enjoy very ornate woodwork. Note the balcony and facade elements.

The house Colon Museum is opposite the Sainte Anne Cathedral of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in the historic district of Vegueta. This is where Christopher Columbus lived during his stops in the Canary Islands. As the Canaries were on the road to go to America, they offered to sailors a welcome stop before facing the ocean and the Atlantic. Entrance to the museum is free. It is a beautiful colonial houses with wooden balconies, roof tiles and whitewashed walls with lime. Inside, there is a very interesting exhibition on the evolution of maps and navigation tools. You can see how the achievements and advancements of geography and astronomy altered cards through the centuries, until you reach the current knowledge. The other side shows the various voyages of Columbus, then there are maps of the colonization of the new world, and a part of the broader history of Las Palmas. The artwork comes from pre-Columbian cultures, such as Aztec, Mayan, the oaxaqueños ... a very interesting place.

La maison musée Colon se trouve en face de la cathédrale Sainte Anne de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, dans le quartier historique de Vegueta. C’est la que Christophe Colomb se logeait durant ses escales aux Canaries. Comme les Canaries étaient sur la route pour aller vers les Amériques, elles offraient aux marins une escale bienvenue avant d’affronter la haute mer et la transatlantique.
L’entrée au musée est gratuite. C’est une superbe maisons coloniale, avec des balcons de bois, un toit en tuiles et des murs blanchis a la chaux. A l’intérieur, on trouve une exposition très intéressante sur l’évolution des cartes et des outils de navigation. On peut voir comment les conquêtes et les avancements de la géographie et de l’astronomie modifiaient les cartes a travers les siècles, jusqu’a arriver aux connaissances actuelles.
L’autre partie montre les divers voyages de Colomb, il y a ensuite des cartes de la colonisation du nouveau monde, et une partie sur l’histoire plus générale de Las Palmas.
Les œuvres d’art viennent des cultures précolombiennes, comme les aztèques, les mayas, les oaxaqueños… un endroit très intéressant.
