If you decide to "climb" the Columbus monument you'll see a nice view its surroundings: the port, Montjuic, Las Ramblas... There is a very small round elevator which takes you to the view-point. It's very small too and there can be just 10 persons at the same time there, so if there are a lot of people waiting they can limit your observation time. The problem I found here is that the windows are fully covered of glass and it's a little bit dirty in some parts. That's why you can see some of my pictures with "black dots".

VISTAS DESDE EL MONUMENTO A COLÓN
Si decides "escalar" el monumento a Colón verás una bonita vista de sus alrededores: el puerto, Montjuic, Las Ramblas... Hay un ascensor muy pequeño que te lleva al mirador. Este es muy pequeño también y puede haber en él un máximo de 10 personas al mismo tiempo, así que si hay mucha gente esperando pueden limitar tu tiempo allí. El problema que encontré es que las ventanas están completamente cubiertas por cristal que está un poco sucio en algunos lugares. Por eso puedes ver algunos "puntos negros" en mis fotos.
