The Christopher Columbus Monument Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Christopher Columbus Monument

A large scale sculpture built for the 1888 Universal Exhibition in honour of the discovery of America. A statue of the admiral pointing his finger towards the sea is fixed on top of a world globe at the very top of a 50m high metal column. A lift will take you up to the watchtower, 60m high, from where you can enjoy a splendid panorama over the city, the mountains, and the sea. The column is found at the end of the Ramblas facing Port Vell, where the famous 'golondrinas' (local boat-taxi) go back and forth to the pier.
