Visit to the Columbus monument

Just 10min from the hostel

Located at the end of the Rambla in Barcelona, very close to the sea, the Mirador de Colón, the work of Gaietà Buïgas, inaugurated in 1888 for the Universal Exposition, was dedicated to Christopher Columbus since, when he returned from his trip to America, chose the port of Barcelona to disembark.

Barcelona's port

A paradise in the best environment

The citizen port is Port Vell, which corresponds to the oldest part of the Port of Barcelona, in the Ciutat Vella District. Historically it was an area dedicated to trade and fishing, but with a view to the 1992 Olympic Games a transformation began to turn it into a civic space. In this way, promenades such as “the Rambla de Mar” or “el Moll de la Fusta” were opened, the transformation of the Palau de Mar into a museum, the construction of the World Trade Center or the opening of “el Moll d'Espanya” with leisure spaces such as the Maremagnum , the IMAX cinema or the Aquarium.
