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 take an elevator to the top for great views of the area.

The Columbus Monument ( Monument A Colom ) is one of the most stunning columns I've ever seen in Spain.
Walking down to the lower end of Las Ramblas towards the harbour area and this 60 metre high column is simply stunning and is a fitting monument to Christopher Columbus.
The column was erected for the Exposición Universal De Barcelona in 1888 to honour the first voyage of Columbus to the Americas,it signifies that Christopher Columbus first gave the news of his adventure and voyage to the Americas to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand V in Barcelona.
Sculpured by Rafael Atché ,the statue of Columbus atop the column shows the great man pointing towards the new world with his right hand and a scroll in his left hand but a commenly held belief is that he is pointing east towards Genoa ,the home town of Christopher Columbus and not west towards the Americas, whatever the legend it's an amazing column and a major tourist attraction and one of Barcelona's most iconic landmarks.
You can actually ride the tiny elevator to the top of the column to take in the wonderful harbour area but on my latest visit to this amazing city I chose just to admire the beautiful column.
Easy to locate on either the start or finish of Las Ramblas depending on your point of view and most definitely well worth seeking out.

Impressed by the dimensions of the monument! A lot of small details what’s create a impression that here a lot of people work thousands of year to build this.

Tall, majestic, and imposing, this landmark monument to Columbus stands in a circle overlooking the water in Barcelona.

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
