Highlights of La Rabida

La Rábida, AL, Spain
4 Kudos
La Rabida would be worth while visiting even if Columbus never lived and planned his voyage from here with - as there are interesting cloisters, frescos, historic period decorated rooms, a chapel etc. But his connection to the place makes it that much more worthwhile. Highlights in this regard include the chapel where he prayed. There is also a room on the ground floor (off the cloister) where he had his first discussions with the Father of the monastery. Then upstairs is a large room would Columbus would discuss the nautical necessities of making such a voice. The audioguide does a good job of describing these things.
