CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS EXHIBITION IN PORTOCOLOM
The upcoming 18th of May, the premises of Jardins del Rei, near the Portocolom tourist office, will inaugurate an exposition of a distinguished character that will be called Christopher Columbus and Mallorca.
The exposition awaits the presence of Christopher Colón de Carvajal, Duke of Veragua, one of the discoverer’s ancestors. From Felanitx, it has always been insisted that Columbus was a native there; in fact several theories exist, like the ones of Gabriel Verd Martorell´s researcher, secretary General of the Christopher Columbus Cultural Association. Those contribute with documents that defend Christopher Columbus’ origin.
The Council of Felanitx, the Cultural Center and the Christopher Columbus Cultural Association promote this exposition that expects the presence of José M. Segovia Azcárate, president of the Real SociedadColombinaOnubense.
