Alcazar de Colon

Local nameAlcázar de Colón
LocationLa Hispaniola, Dominican Republic

The Alcázar de Colón, or Columbus Alcazar, located in Santo Domingo's Ciudad Colonial, Dominican Republic, and forms part of the Ciudad Colonial UNESCO's World Heritage Site.

It is the only known residence of a member of the Christopher Columbus's family, his first-born son Diego Columbus.

It was built on a plot close to the rock islet that look towards the Ozama River, granted to Diego Columbus, firstborn son of the discoverer of the Americas, Christopher Columbus, by King Ferdinand II of Aragon, to build a dwelling for him and his descendants on the island Hispaniola, to which he arrived in 1509 as governor. The building houses the Museo Alcázar de Diego Colón, whose collection exhibits the Caribbean's most important ensemble of European late medieval and Renaissance works of art, which were acquired in the 1950s.
