What You'll Do
  • Discover the history of the Colombus Monument
  • Enjoy the panoramic area on top of the monument, at 60 meters above the ground
  • Join an optional wine tasting
Visit one of the most emblematic monuments of Barcelona where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the port. You have also the possibility to taste four of the best varieties of cava and wine with Designation of Origin status.
What to Expect
The Columbus Monument, which opened in 1888 during the Universal Exhibition, stands at the end of La Rambla, near the sea. Take the lift inside the column to the viewing gallery at the top, 60 meters above the ground, where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the port.

Christopher Columbus chose to disembark in Barcelona harbor when he returned from his voyage to America. The Monument is dedicated to this illustrious figure. You'll be able to admire the sculptural ensemble around the base of the magnificent Corinthian-style iron column which has a lift inside that takes you all the way up to the viewing gallery at the top.

When you get to the top, you'll be able to enjoy stunning 360º views. From the Gothic Quarter with the bell towers of the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar and La Mercè  to the bustling Rambla. From Mount Montjuïc, with the castle at the top to the Royal Shipyards, the Drassanes, which are home to the Museu Marítim.

If you look east and follow the coastline, you'll be able to make out the modern Forum area with its characteristic photo-voltaic roof and skyscrapers. Closer to you, the twin towers mark the entrance to the Olympic Marina. At your feet you'll see the old harbor, the Port Vell, and the industrial port. Finally, to the west, you'll see the Parc Natural de Collserola, the vast green "lung" that surrounds the city, with the Collserola Tower and Tibidabo Amusement Park at the top.
In the base of the monument there is an area dedicated to the best local wineries where you'll be able to enjoy the experience of having a glass of wine (white, red, rosé or sparkling) with Designation of Origin stauts with the guidance of an expert that will help you to choose between the various options offered: from the coastal area of Alella to the inland region of Pla de Bages, the innovative D.O. Catalunya and world-renowned Penedès accompanied by a sweet or salty tapa while you listen to a brief explanation of your choice of wine.
