  • Ugly, with a Colon represented very differently to as we are accustomed and looking towards the North instead of West. Too much outside the parameters for my taste

  • Unfortunately it is deteriorating and I play to see it so perhaps next have more luck! You can only enter this restricted many of the access

  • Not easy to transpose the exact translation of this monument in french because it is questionable and may as well mean 'The monument to the faith of the discoverer' depending on the version that "the monument of recovered faith '... In short, what is certain is that it is dedicated to Christophe Colomb (who needs no introduction) who is Huelva's Joan of Arc at Domremy the maid: the hero intergenerational National who went to this little corner of Spain to discover the Americas and with the blood of his descendants still flows in the veins of all Andalusians (or almost) with unparalleled pride. However, contrary to what one might believe, this work of art in 1929 does not represent the statue of the famous browser, but according to its creator, it symbolizes a lambda sailor, staring to the West; in memory of all of those, Oh! How many, who left happy for distant races and who in this bleak horizon faded away (thanks Victor). Objectively, it don't break bricks this monument of 37 meters high, and even if it represents a job, Miss Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, its sculptor, can't ankle Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin (to stay little or less in the same generations of artist from the beginning of the 20th). Fortunately for her, saw that it was a billionaire American armored gold coins (one of the heirs of the famous line "Vanderbilt"), she had not only grain of the stone of Huelva and Niebla (composing) to survive until the new season. There this "Monumento" remains one of 'must-see' history of the city, of course, a little out of the Center, and even if the plants that invade the neighborhood have unfortunately replaced the natural Beach which originally comprised the scenery, in the dark, the place remains always romantic and summer evenings can still come across couples of lovers of all ages who picnic by the water or walking around the stele... even if you feel like it, but rather should not be tempted by a midnight bath that could be highly charged hydrocarbons, knowing!
