Columbus Legend

Christopher Columbus lived on the island of Porto Santo for a few years where he planned his journey that led to the Discovery of America.

For long, grew the belief that in moonlighted nights, Christopher Columbus comes to Porto Santo beach and perambulates his nostalgia. It is said that he can be found walking on the golden sands, stopping from time to time and shading with his hand, and gazes toward the horizon. It is also said that at sunrise this figure dissipates into the air and is only able to be seen again on another moonlit night.
