  • Definitely recommend the place. The monument offerd a great view from its 62 meters high tower, one could go up for 6 euro or with a discount. The monument itself is a thing of beauty with 8 surrounding lions.

  • Impressive monument between La Rambla and the sea. I love the lions. In a high traffic area (foot and cars). There is an elevator inside to a viewing area.

  • Pretty place, worth a visit. You will not see anything special at the top. So don't waste your time and money. Better take a walk along the seafront.

  • Beautiful harbour. Great views. Nice restaurants and shops. Love walking in area
