"Columbus Monument" Mirador De Colom - Columbus Monument Tip by tim07

  Monument a Colon
by tim07

Built in 1888 to celebrate the discovery of America by Christopher Colombus & situated between Las Ramblas & the port area. This 60 m monument provides great views of the city from the viewing platform. The platform is reached by a small lift, as the viewing platform is enclosed it can get hot & crowded up there, but the views are worth it.

Address: Place del portal de la Pau
Directions: Metro: Drassanes
