Plaça de Colon, Barcelona
The famous discoverer Columbus is looking down on everybody who is coming from or going to the harbour. The statue is at the end (or beginning?) of the Ramblas.
There is a lift to a viewing platfom in top of the statue. Open from 10-13:30 and 15:30-18:30.
Again we discovered Barcelona by foot. It are long distances but it's really worth it. You see so much more from this amazing city.
Fondest memory: Walking in the area of the harbour gives you the feeling that the world is open for you. It's also the place where Columbus came back in 1493. As a reminder there is a big statue.
Favorite thing: See the statue of Christopher Columbus, the second European man to discover America after Leiv Eriksson, who was there 500 years earlier. But when Chris returned, he came to Barcelona with all his hard earned treasures.
At the beginning of the Ramblas on the harbour side there is the Colombus square with its monument.
Then, after some minuts of walks, the Rambla endes up in Catalunya square.
Favorite thing: Close to the old Harbour,also can do a visit to PLAZA DE COLON ,or Columbus Place,where you can see a big Columbus sculpture.
Pose for a couple more pics at the monument.
Fondest memory: The beautiful cravings found at the base of the Christopher Columbus Monument.
Pose for a picture at the Christopher Columbus Monument.
Fondest memory: Walking towards the coast from the Ramblas, you will come to the Christopher Columbus Monument. You can't miss it.
