A obligatory stop on ocean voyages heading to the West Indies, the Canary Islands is home to what is undoubtedly the most important collection of silverware from the Americas outside the New World, both in terms of its extensiveness and quality, tangible evidence of the shared history and culture of Europe and the Americas and the Canary Islands' position as a point of contact between the two worlds, now on display in Aguere.
