  • The monument to Columbus, has finally found a place giving enhancement to your figure. After being in various locations, I think that it is the most successful and tribute is paid to the descrubidor of America, Cristóbal Colón. A great success of the enclave.

  • Colon square is located away from the city centre. In the middle of the square there is a statue of Columbus. Taking pictures around the square is quite a busy major road so if you think of over the road.

  • A simple and not very impressive monument for such an important figure in the European and American history. Cristobal Columbus was Italian and in 1942 discovered America; and when I say America, I mean the Continent, not the country United States of America.
  • Monument to Christopher Columbus, in the midst of the Plaza de Colón traffic. Looks nice with the Torres de Colón as a backdrop. The large adjoining square is the Jardines del Descubrimiento (Gardens of Discovery), also honouring the explorer. At the Calle de Serrano side of the square is a beautiful monumental sculpture by Joaquín Vaquero Turcios, "Monumento al Descubrimiento de América"
  • It is a square with the monument to the discoverer of America and is very interesting because inside it has two memorials to his around has also discovery gardens famous plaza de Colón flag the flag of Spain, the world's largest the statue of Blas de Lezo and the Centro Cultural de la Villa in Columbus

  • Monument to the sailors who played life unaware that fix to the other side of the pond, for adventure, money or because they had nothing to lose. It opened on October 12, 1892 to celebrate the 400 centenary of discovery. Cultural center is located under Park Fernando Fernán Gómez.

  • Charming neo-Gothic monument (the entire area was completed in the years ' 70).
