Everyone that visits Las Palmas stops in old town Vegueta and admires the stone carvings and massive doorway of the Casa de Colón museum; The house where Columbus stayed on his way to discover America. But is is what it seems?

Published in History

Gran Canaria's only cathedral is a mishmash or architectural styles because it was built over 500 years.

Published in Las Palmas

Published in Las Palmas
