Philadelphia is a city of many, many monuments. Most are tied to American history, but a few have different themes. This one, near Penn's Landing on the Delaware River, honors Christopher Columbus. The top of the monument is a two-sided weather vane - the Italian flag is on one side, the Spanish flag on the other. On this day, the wind was blowing toward the Italian side.

Address: Columbus Blvd, next to the Hyatt Regency
