The statue is in the middle of the city. You can go and see anywhere you want from here. There are many cafes and restaurants around it.

We've seen Columbus in Portugal, Columbus in Barcelona and now in Huelva. He certainly got around! I heard his connection to Huelva was that he came to one of the local churches to give thanks for the success of his voyage. His statue is located...More

How many towns and cities do pretend that they have hosted Columbus? Yet another city: Huelva. Columbus was in this city to recruit crew and this monument commemorates this. Pointing at... the west I presume?

The monument is a lovely piece in the middle of Huelva. IT salutes the history of the city and shows they are proud of it!

This statue is right in the center of town and there's a beautiful fountain behind it. Its a great place to take some photos of Huelva. Its probably the prettiest place in town.

It is a humongous statue facing the ocean to the south. America is to the west, but the harbor West exit that Columbus used does not exist any more, so who cares. The place where he started is also some km away but this place...More

It is just that, a huge statue! Visit on your way to or from the Columbus Ship Museum. Its size is impressive both close up and from a distance but nothing to really make you linger (especially on a chilly February afternoon!
