The Royal Pavilion - Monasterio Santa Maria de las Cuevas


The Royal Pavilion - original site of the Monastery Santa Maria de las Cuevas - was said to be where Columbus consulted maps made by Monks at the Monastery for his voyage to the New World.

The Pavilion was also the venue for Protocol at the Expo - often the place of respite for the Spanish Crown during their visits to the Expo, and for visiting heads of state.

The Pavilion also featured a uniquely curated 1492-themed international Museum exhibit - a 'once only' curated world-wide exhibition of civilisation of the planet circa 1492, and, the Fifteenth Century Pavilion, a guided tour re-creation of life in Fifteenth Century Europe.
