Casa di Cristoforo Colombo
Sa to Su from 09:00 AM to 06:00 PMThe building said to be the house where the great seafarer spent his youth is close to the Chiosro di S.Andrea and to the Porta Soprana o di S.Andrea. In fact it is a seventeenth century reconstruction after this and other buildings in the area were bombed by the Roi Soleil in 1684. It is interesting that this house was the only one left standing during the fascist period when the whole Ponticello area was demolished and replaced by the current buildings.
