Why Visit Columbus Monument
Built to commemorate Christopher Columbus's journey to the Americas, the 197 ft tall iron monument is a special dedication to the skilled naval commander. The structure, completed in 1888, is a breathtaking spectacle. Sculpted by Rafael Atche, the 131 ft Corinthian column is capped by a 24 ft statue of Columbus. The intricate carvings and sculptures all along the column, its base, and pedestal, reflect the artwork this city is world-famous for. Catch beautiful views of the monument and travel to the top where you can see a panoramic view of the city.
