The Columbus Monument which was dedicated in 1888 as part of the ceremonies marking the Universal Exhibition, stands at the end of La Rambla of Barcelona, near the sea.

The Columbus Monument was a 2.5 km walk from our hotel, but definitely worth the time it took. Just walking along Rambla de Catalunya which becomes La Rambla was great fun on a Sunday morning. La Rambla ends at the monument. I had purchased tickets...More

Great monument for representing the success of an early explorer. Tall and a good point to know where Las Rambla is located.
