Christopher Columbus Statue (Monument)

Christopher Columbus...

The Columbus Monument is one of the most famous statues in Barcelona. It can be found on Plaza del Portal de la Pau and was built to pay respects to the achievements of Christopher Columbus.

The monument was constructed on 1st June, 1888 in response to the upcoming 1888 Barcelona International Exposition. The statue measures in at a total of 60 metres in height.

The statue represents Columbus with his hand outstretched and the finger pointing towards the sea. Initially the idea was to have it pointing towards the Americas, however it would be pointing inland, which wouldn't make sense, therefore it points more or less in the opposite direction.

In the interior of the column there is an elevator that allows you to go up to just below the statue's feet, from here you can take in an excellent view of the city.


  • Address: Plaza Portal de la Pau, 1, 08002, Barcelona
