  • This gave first rate views all over Barcelona, not for the faint hearted though, the lift was tiny and very cramped and the viewing platform quite scary if you don't like heights, loved it though and great value for money, the free glass of wine would have cost as much as the entire tour.

  • The view was good not great. The 3 persons working there were grumpy and unfriendly.

  • We did this on the first day we arrived in Barcelona. The view from the top was amazing. We had a clear afternoon and could see for miles. We were very lucky, we took this tour around 5pm and didn't have long to wait for the lift at all. The wine tasting at the end was a lovely way to finish our time there.

  • Great place to see with a great view of Barcelona.

  • It is well worth going to the top of this well known statue to get excellent panoramic views of Barcelona. There is not much room up there and you have to wait for about 20mins to get the lift but still worth doing. However although I paid the 2.00 extra I wasn't given any wine but I didn't mind as it was a very hot and humid day.

  • This was the first thing we did while in Barcelona! It was very cool to see the city from this high up! It was nice to be able to do this anytime during the day when you purchase your ticket. Many people visit this monument but don't realize you can go inside. It was worth the money to go inside! This was the smallest elevator my husband and I have ever been in which was fun! The wine tasting inside the Columbus Monument was very refreshing. It was definitely cheaper to buy your ticket on tripadvisor ahead of time than pay inside the monument.

  • Good value and a nice view, wine tasting was nice too

  • I forgot to print my voucher and the staff there was amazing. They helped me send it to the clerk who printed it for me after waiting for a long while to receive it. The bartender was very sweet and helpful. The wines were amazing. Small, local vineyards. Great time, great service, really nice people!

  • What a great experience!
    The space at the top is very narrow, that is why only a few can go at a time. the view is spectacular and NO stairs!
    The wine at the end was refreshing and the staff was very pleasant throughout the entire monument.

  • Very nice view!
