Etched in this destination are the footsteps of Christopher Columbus, who brought with him six Caribbean Indians to attest to the triumphant discovery of the New World.
The Columbus Monument is a 200-feet tall cast iron, towering over the Portal de la Pau or "Gate of Peace" created for the 1888 Universal Exhibition. A story worthy of being incorporated into the world's greatest history pages: Columbus stepping ashore in 1493, confirming that America has been indeed discovered. Furthermore, the SalÃ³ del Tinell served as the venue for a state welcome by the Catholic royalty. The cathedral, on the other hand, witnessed the Indians' conversion to Christianity. Relive such important moments in world history by accessing the lift, which leads to a viewing platform at the top of the monument.
