Ride to the top, and you'll see! The Columbus Monument which was dedicated in 1888 as part of the ceremonies marking the Universal Exhibition, stands at the end of La Rambla of Barcelona, near the sea. Take the lift inside the column to the viewing...more

We didn't even know that there was an elevator inside the column until we read these reviews. Our tour of Barcelona included this attraction and therefore the tour guide got us off the bus, made us do a walk of about a kilometer and brought...More
Fittingly this huge statue in the plaza bearing his name is facing out to the city. 7-8 stories high it's hard to miss and many people use it as a meeting place. It was built in 1888 for a World Fair. You can walk or...More

Coming from the port and find yourself in this square. An impressive statue of Christopher Columbus on top of a column, pointing towards the New World. In that square is the start (or the end...) of Las Ramblas

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.
