The three monuments

The home of Christopher Columbus is located at one end of the Piazza Dante; it was rebuilt in the 18th century, after the considerable damage caused by the bombing of the French naval fleet against Genoa in 1684. This is where the famous navigator spent his early childhood. In the garden behind the house of Columbus is the cloister of St. Andrew, rebuilt here after the 1904 demolition of the Benedictine monastery of the same name to which it belonged.
The gate Porta Soprana is at a short distance: of medieval origin, it was one of the most important entrances to the city, and a necessary passageway for those who came from the east.
