Plaza Colon, Madrid

(3.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Plaza Colon commemorates the explorer Christopher Columbus and his voyage to the Americas. Spend time admiring the monuments dedicated to the traveler. There is a statue of Columbus, a large fountain, and a large modern concrete sculpture decorated with quotes by philosophers and noted Spaniards. Stroll through the plaza’s gardens and stop to watch the world go by. Take a photo in front of the massive Spanish flag for a great memento of your trip.

  • A good place to stay, plaza without major features except the huge flag of Spain, my understanding is the largest in the world, that we can admire in her.

  • Seeing the flag bigger than Spain. Beautiful square with gardens, very clean and different from the usual.

  • A place where many neighborhoods, meet with stations inside and close to train. There are often cultural exhibitions in it. The flag of Spain, which presides over it is spectacular
