Follow in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus

In the 15th century, Christopher Columbus supposedly visited La Gomera before sailing across the Atlantic. History fans will love Casa de Colón, where the explorer is said to have stayed. Part house, part museum, this place often shows temporary exhibitions of art and photography. Casa de la Aguada is also worth visiting. This 17th-century customs house became famous when Columbus drew water from its well. According to legend, he took the water away with him to bless the New World.
