  • Passeig de Colom is perhaps the main tourist Avenue for walks by the sea. Many times walked along, hope and walk again. In addition to the sea and the famous Palm trees growing in three rows on the Avenue, a tourist asked many important Barcelona attractions. Actually, from the monument of Kolubmu, home of Cervantes. In short, there is plenty to do.
