Columbus Monument (Mirador de Colom) Tours and Activities

star-4
9 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.
Address: Plaza Portal de la Pau, Barcelona, Catalonia 08002, Spain
Hours: March-September: 8:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; October-February: 8:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m.
