Monumento De Cristobal Colon - Review
Made by Arturo Mélida and Jeronimo Suñol, the Monumento de Cristobal Colon was erected in the 1880’s to commemorate the anniversary of the return of Christopher Columbus from his first voyage.
The tall pedestal that elevates the statue to a staggering height of 17 metres is designed in Elizabethan Gothic and consist of four parts- the base, the cube, an ochavado and the pillar.
The statue of Columbus carrying a flag of Castile is 3 meters high. A globe near the foot of Columbus with a sailing rope around the glove depicts his seaward journey. The intricate art-work that is shown on the pedestal itself, is rather stunning and is the highlight of the monument.
