In the centre of the Plaza Portal de la Pau stands the world famous Columbus monument.
According to the legend that is the very place where Columbus reported to the Queen of Spain about the discovery of America.
The monument contains an elevator inside taking you up to Columbus’s feet where you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the port and the whole city.
Apart from the Columbus monument you can see a small antiques market and an amazingly beautiful building of the ancient seaport. I consider it to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole city.
Right near the square the Barcelona Aquarium is located.
