Granada Off The Beaten Path: 118 reviews and 194 photos
Columbus financed his voyage to the new world by winning the graces of his queen in Granada - this event is immortalized in stone by the sculpture of Columbus unfurling his contract in front of Queen Isabella.
According to the contract, Columbus would keep a portion of the riches he brought back from the spice colonies and also earn the title of governor of the new world. In return, he promised Isabella that he would spread Christianity in her name in all the places his voyage would take him.
Unfortunately, neither party got what they wanted.
