Colom – Museu Marítim stop

Hola Barcelona, your travel solution

Barcelona Bus Turístic takes you to the Columbus Monument, which was erected pointing seaward at the confluence of the old harbour and La Rambla, the city’s most emblematic street.

A stroll around the bottom of La Rambla

The Colom – Museu Marítim stop of the Red Route of Barcelona Bus Turístic not only allows you to see the famous sculpture erected in homage to the explorer Christopher Columbus, but also to visit the majestic Royal Shipyards building that is home to the Maritime Museum of Barcelona, and walk up La Rambla from its bottom section, which was the nerve centre of 19th-century Barcelona.

This section of La Rambla, known as La Rambla de Santa Mònica, is home to Arts Santa Mònica art centre, which conserves the cloister from the convent over which it was built, and the Wax Museum, located in a 19th-century Neoclassical building.

And if you go into the bottom part of the Raval district, you will discover one of Europe’s best Romanesque cloisters at Sant Pau del Camp Monastery and one of the first projects undertaken by Antoni Gaudí, Palau Güell, the facade of which features two monumental gates adorned with wrought iron figures.
