Columbus Monument Reviews & Ratings
I give 5 stars to visit with the wine package and I will explain why. The elevator to the top and the top view is quite block by the statue itself. So you cannot see to clear the city and it is pretty short. I would not waste money on that alone. But if you also take the wine package you will get a glass of wine in some wine bar underground just a beautiful place... and the workers there are sooo nice. They just made us the whole visit just perfect. I thing who they work for is lucky. Thank you.
It’s a very good place with very good viewing. I went there with my friends and we spent there a very good time with each others. We took good photos with the great views and the monuments which we saved as one of the most happy moments we spent together. I recommend this place to go with a good quality camera to take some great photos.
Lovely architecture. Walking on the streets of Barcelona, This monument catches your eye. Me n my friends had a discussion on who it is and why it has been built. It’s a long story. We enjoyed the time there and clicked beautiful pictures to preserve our memories. Hats off to the service staff to keep it so well maintained and clean.
Loved the place. Also great area to get around. We were at Sunday and had a lot of fun
Cool place that always reminds me of Donald Duck going off to hunt for a stolen picasso for some reason. Gives a powerful image of the age of exploration. You can also enjoy views from the top.
