Columbus Monument

Monumento a Colon or the Columbus monument is a 60-metre-tall monument dedicated to the legendary Christopher Columbus, in Barcelona. Completed in 1888 at the exact location where Columbus returned to Spain after his first voyage, in the lower end of La Rambla, the monument reminds both residents and tourists of his notable discoveries. Several copies of the monument can be found in locations such as the Shima Spanish Village and the Mini-Europe Park located in Belgium, Brussels. Being a huge city with several districts, Barcelona is also the second largest city in Spain and a popular tourist attraction.

  • Visit the magnificent structure known as the Columbus Monument, with its unique statue, column, octagonal pedestal, and plinth that showcase important scenes from Columbus’ first voyage to the new world.
  • Enjoy historic tours at Barcelona's Museum of Natural History and CosmoCaixa Science museum as well as the delightful aerial tramway harbour cable car ride that connects Montjuic and Barceloneta.
  • Experience Barcelona’s famous annual festivals, which run at various times throughout the year and include Sonar, Festes de la Merce, and Festes de Gracia.

With two terminals, the local airport receives many visitors on a daily basis. Transportation is available from the airport in the form of taxis, minibuses, EuropeShuttle service, and the airport train service. Barcelona-Sants, Barcelona-Passeig de Gracia, and Barcelona-Estacio de Franca offer alternative trains to various parts of the city and Europe. Getting to attractions such as Gaudi Architectural sites and the Columbus Monument is easy with a number of bicycle hire companies, scooters, public buses, and exotic transportation such as Tramvia Blau, the old tram system and the Funicular. Car hire is also an option, although parking can be expensive.
