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.

  • One of the "must" when visiting Madrid. Here is the biggest Spain flag I've ever seen. And from here you can just take a walk to the city center and enjoy the other places on the way, as Plaza Cibeles.
  • One of the more famous squares in Madrid, set by a beautiful park flying a large Spanish flag. National Archaeological museum and the Wax Museum are nearby. Recommended.
