What people are saying:

in my opinion, the statue is more like a totem, one hand holds book, one hand, pointing to the direction of the American continent Columbus in the face of the sea, "to the west, to the west" shout and behind saturated with faith, has been deeply integrated into the once sea overlord of every people in the blood.

Introduction

Constructed for the 1888 exposition, the Columbus Monument in Barcelona is a significant landmark of the city and commemorates the location where Christopher Columbus was greeted by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella on his return from his first journey to America. This 197 foot cast-iron monument was sculpted by Rafael Atche. It is said to depict Columbus pointing out land upon reaching the Americas. The statue which houses an elevator in its column, offers you the chance to view the city from a viewing platform located in the sphere under the statue's feet.
