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 gallery at the top, a viewpoint 60 meters above the ground, where you can enjoy great views of Barcelona.

Beautiful views! Take your time to enjoy! Have the wine after so you can take in the rest of the plaza and the views of las Ramblas. Worth the ticket to the top!

One of the greatest explorers. Lets get down to the waterfront and celebrate him. While doing so we should think just how incredible that journey into the unknown must have been.

Found a lovely little wine cellar and museum under the Columbus Monument. For 6 Euro you can go to the stop and get spectacular views of Barcelona. For 8 Euro, you get the views and a glass of wine. Excellent value, highly recommended.

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter 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
