Mirador de Colón, enjoy the incredible views of Barcelona by climbing the monument dedicated to Christopher Columbus (1452–1506), 60 meters above the ground.

Located at the end of Las Ramblas beside the sea, it was inaugurated in 1888 during the International Exhibition held in the city.

The monument pays tribute to Christopher Columbus, who chose to disembark in the port of Barcelona on his return from America.

Inside the column, there is a lift that lets you access the viewpoint, 60 meters above the ground, where you can admire magnificent views of Barcelona.
