The Barcelona Colom monument (also known as Colon) is a memorial to the great explorer Christopher Columbus. You will find Barcelona Colon at the very Southern most end of the Ramblas, very close to the Eurostars Grand marina hotel the plush new hotel in Barcelona with magnificent views of Barcelona marina area and a hotel ideally placed to explore the city.
Barcelona colom monument is a giant building towering 60 meters into the sky with the statue of Columbus standing proudly at the top pointing out toward the sea.
In the following photo guide we've included photos of Barcelona Colom but also of Port Vell which is the marina area just across the road from Colum. Port Vell has an attractive walkway across the marina called Rambla del Mar to a very popular location home to the both the Aquarium, and IMAX cinema. However the walk in itself is reason to visit this area as it's a very charming and you'll have some great views of the marina.
