The Columbus monument (Mirador de Colom or Colon monument) is a memorial to the great explorer Christopher Columbus. You will find Mirador de Colom at the Southern most end of the Ramblas, close to the Eurostars Grand marina hotel which has magnificent views of Barcelona marina area and 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 both of Barcelona Colom and 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. This walkway leads to a popular shopping location called the Maremagnum centre and is also home to the Barcelona Aquarium. However the walk in itself is reason to visit this area as it's charming and you'll have some wonderful views of the marina.
