The summit of the Columbus Monument, located at the end of the bustling La Rambla boulevard, offers stunning views of Barcelona’s seaside city sprawl. Guarantee your entry to the historic landmark by purchasing your entrance ticket in advance, thereby ensuring you enjoy panoramic vistas of the Gothic Quarter, Santa Maria del Pi Basillica, and Barceloneta Beach. Upgrade to enjoy a glass of wine from a region of your choice, accompanied by a Spanish tapas taster, in the monument’s wine tasting area.
On the date specified at booking, make your own way to the Columbus Monument, located on Passeig de Colon near Las Ramblas: the 54-meter (179-foot) column, topped by the golden figure of Columbus pointing out to sea, is instantly recognizable.
At the landmark, present your voucher to a cashier and step inside an elevator destined for the observation deck, located beneath the pointing finger of legendary explorer, Christopher Columbus.
Drink in 360-degree views of the Gothic Quarter, home to Santa Maria del Pi Basillica, and the Parc de Montjuic, where the Olympic Ring resides. See, too, Barceloneta Beach, Port Vella, and La Rambla, lined with Gaudi masterpieces and Spanish cafes.
Then, if you’ve upgraded to include a wine tasting experience, head to the Espai de Vins Mirador de Colom and select a wine made in one of four regions: Alella, Catalunya, Penedès and Pla de Bages. You’ll also receive a sweet or savory tapa taster to accompany your wine.
Leave the monument at a time convenient to you.
