Columbus' house

In Santo Domingo, in the town square, you notice a funny two level structure perched on the edge and overlooking the ports. The Alcazar de Colon was a house built in 1510 by Cristobol Colombo's (Christopher Columbus) son, Diego. Diego was the Viceroy of La Española and the Indies in 1509. These conquistadors and their brethren were responsible for the invasion and destruction of Native American culture yet are still honored in Santo Domingo, today.

It's filled with artifacts from the time and is a solid look into the era.

Interesting to note that it did have a third floor until Sir Francis Drake, the pirate, burned it off as a conquering parting-gift to the town.
