Visited as part of a tour group. We felt as if we had stepped back in time, lots of things to look at, maps & charts, diaries and a good replicated cabin. You realise how hard these voyages must have been.
For sure, Casa de Colon is one of the place one must visit when in the great city of Las Palmas. Dont esitate, go and see it you will not be disappointed.
