After Christopher Columbus discovered the New World, he left his legacy behind in the form of his son Diego. The home that Diego and his wife built in the 16th century, Alcázar de Colón, still stands today, allowing visitors to see how the prominent family lived.


Alcázar de Colón is a boxy building of white brick with elegant, palatial furnishings.
