Columbus Monument (Mirador de Colom) Tours

star-4
12 reviews
Columbus Monument (Mirador de Colom)
Some shorelines have lighthouses; Barcelona has the Columbus Monument (Mirador de Colom). Standing 197 feet tall — the top 24 feet of which make up the statue of Columbus himself — the tower is quite hard to miss, especially given its prominent position at the end of Las Ramblas, and along the marina.The monument of Columbus (Colom in Catalan, or Colón in Spanish) was erected in 1888 for the Universal Exposition and in honor of the famous explorer, who returned here after his first expedition to the Americas. Much discussion is made of where he is pointing: some have thought he points to the New World, while others say he points east to his supposed home of Genoa — in reality, however, it seems he points southeast and therefore to nothing in particular but the sea, where he was probably most at home. On your visit here, admire the grand statue from below, or get a look at Columbus’s bird’s-eye view by taking the elevator up to the lookout platform.

Practical Info

The Columbus Monument is easily reachable from the tourist center, and also easily findable given its size and location (at the end of Las Ramblas). Note that the not-so-noticeable elevator only fits a few people at a time, as does the lookout, so those that don’t like tight spaces may wish to skip the visit to the viewing platform.

PRIVATE FAMILY DISCOVERY TOUR IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF COLUMBUS

How was the world perceived 500 years ago? What was life like at the docks in Barcelona in 1492?And on board a caravel? What were the voyages of Columbus to the “New World” like? Was he really the first one to arrive there?We wonder about all this and we find the answers together. We learn how to locate these events in an symbolic timeline, and we touch and smell food we use daily that came from America and Asia, such as spices and cocoa.We think about the history and suppression of the native, slavery and the relevance of respect and morals of different peoples and cultures.We visit Casa Xifré and we become detectives to rediscover elements related to the sea, the exotic tropics, and the indiano heritage in Barcelona. This way, we can understand the economical and exotic wealth the “discovery of America” brought to Spain.We try to finish our tour in Casa Gispert, one of the oldest colonial shops in the city, where we can still feel the smell and the mysticism of the past.
