The monument commemorates Columbus' first voyage to the new world and is a reminder that he disembarked in Barcelona after returning from the new world. It was constructed for the Barcelona exposition in 1888 and is located in Port Vell at one end of the...More

Yup, it's a statue. Very tall, so a bit hard to make out the details. It's next to the water though, so the trip won't be wasted if you go to see it.

An interesting monument to see. We saw it from the bus tour we went on so did not get a lot of time to have a look or take photos. If you take one of the bus tours you will get to see it.

well, the Statue ain't really impressive - it's tall, so you can see it from afar...but nothing unusual with that. We didn't go up, so I can't tell if the view is good or anything...

Quite an impressive statue on a tall pillar. It is at the end of La Rambla, so if you are walking to the port, you will see it.

Monumento a Cristoforo Colombo is an icon of Barcelona. You can't miss it and if you are there don't miss the elevator that wil take you to the top of the column so you can enjoy the wonderful views .

Here Columbus has moored after his successful trip to America. At the top there is a statue that points to the west. I think there are stairs inside and one can climb to the panoramic terrace at the top.

It's a big roundabout with the guy pointing to the americas on top if the roundabout. There's a big sidewalk that takes you to the marina and were you can have a nice stroll. Worth a visit.

Getting upstairs of the Columbus memorial is a very nice experience (6€/adult, 4€/children, free in some cases), except if you are claustrophobic and/or agoraphobic. The place upstairs is quite small, and, if there is some wind, you may get the feeling of movement. In any...More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and

Non ricordo con precisione, ma dovrebbe essere intorno ai 5 euro. La vista da 60 metri di altezza è molto bella.
