    It is good if you falls out of step, monument to Columbus is Columbus, is a monk, it is good, but not anything important if you miss. Does cool at night and if you get a few things to eat you ride you a curious picnic at night do not leave you bathe in monument Beach

    Without going there right below, surely is best seen from the bridge that leads to la rabida and caravelle ... monument dedicated to Mariners Sea Scouts

    This monument is massive but rather austere. There is parking available and locals use the area for fishing. We stopped here on our way to the nearby Monasterio La Rabida, where Columbus stayed. The b...  more »

    The most important monument in Huelva. Made by Miss Withney, it welcomes the ships when they come from the sea to Huelva. It is a crucial viewpoint.

    Walked for hours from the bus terminal to here since I had too much time in Huelva. Would be more convenient if you drive. Anyway, very nice view.

    It is a beautiful place to spend the day, but if you go by bike must be taken care by that people do not respect the lanes

    Must-see if you go to Huelva. The monument is at the tip of tallow, ancient beach. It is a gift from the United States in the year 1929, then came the crack. People thinks that it is the statue of Columbus, but no, is the monument to the discovering faith, representing a sailor looking West, resting on a Franciscan Cross (Tau) hoping to discover new lands. Remember that Colon was a Franciscan tertiary, then the Franciscan cross is not by chance. It is impressing to see that mass of rock. This hollow pedestal, you can visit a specific day, better to find out if you want to visit it, I could not. C' c'est la vie.
