The monument, dedicated to Christopher Columbus, is a very good sculpture/monument and worth seeing while in this area.

Monument dedicated to Columbus who must be the worlds most well known explorer, you can get a birds eye view of this monument if you ride the cable car from the port.

The spit is nice and this is a nice piece of architecture at the harbor in the end of Rambla. Well worth some nice photos.

This monument to Christopher Columbus is fabulously intricate with superb attention to detail with many sculptures and smaller monuments upon it. You can also ride up it in a lift for a fee which I didn't do.

This is almost at the port end of the Rambla, and it's well worth strolling down the Rambla to the port and seeing it as both the Rambla and the port area are not to be missed. You can take the elevator up for a...More

Hi - I don't recall a park dedicated to Columbus near the column, but there are other big parks nearby which are nice to visit.
