This is an attractive monument at the end of the Ramblas but don't just admire the lions etc as there are fabulous views of the Ramblas, Port Vell, El Raval and Barri Gotic. The price for the lift is cheap and for seniors discounted. The view from the safe and enclosed platform is magnificent-so no problem for those who fear... More

One of the (if not the) tallest Colombo statues in the world. It is impressive and the carved statues around it make it even more majestic. Worth seeing if you find yourself in the area (harbor).

The Columbus Monument is at the lower end of La Rambla, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was constructed in 1888 for the Exposición Universal de Barcelona to honor Columbus' first voyage to the Americas and is 60 meters tall.

This large monument to Christopher Columbus is found near the coastal end of La Ramblas. You can go up to the viewing platform for a spectacular vista over the city and harbour area.

It's huge and a bit impressive, but I don't think you need much time to see it. Walk by and then head towards Maremagnum for some shopping.

小心不誠實的櫃台人員, 用信用卡付款時會用DCC ,會多出10%的費用 塔上很小,有點髒,唯一的優點大概只剩可以鳥瞰港口風光 Be attention, the desk clerk will let you pay DCC fee by charging on your credit card

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
