Columbus Lighthouse and its collection

Columbus Lighthouse

The Columbus Lighthouse, known as Faro a Colón in Spanish, is a monument dedicated to Christopher Columbus. It is located in Santo Domingo Este, Dominican Republic. This monument, which also serves as a mausoleum, was constructed in honor of Columbus and his voyages. It is a significant landmark in the Dominican Republic and a popular destination for tourists.

Lighthouse-Style Design

One of the unique features of the Columbus Lighthouse is its lighthouse-style design. It projects beams of light that form a cross shape. These beams are so powerful that they can be seen from neighboring Puerto Rico. This feature adds to the monument's visual appeal and makes it a sight to behold, especially at night.

Museum Exhibits

The Columbus Lighthouse is not just a monument; it also serves as a museum. It showcases various objects of interest, including a boat from Cuba and Colombian jewelry. These exhibits provide a glimpse into the history and culture of the Americas, making the monument a rich source of information for visitors.
