Canary Islands: Casa de Colón in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

On Saturday I got three postcards: one from the Canary Islands, one from Italy and one from Belgium.

The card from the Canary Islands shows the Casa de Colón in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the most populous city of the Canary Islands and one of its two co-capitals. It is also the ninth largest city in Spain.

The Casa de Colón is located near the cathedral. It was once the residence of the governor and in 1492 Christopher Columbus visited the house. Today it houses a museum about Columbus and his journeys.

With a nice stamp:
International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (from set of two) (issued 17-01-2017)

Thank You very much Marcel!
