One of Barcelona’s iconic landmarks and a favorite perch of pigeons, the 60 m (197 ft) Mirador de Colom points proudly across the sea. Built in 1888 to commemorate Columbus reporting his first journey to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the monument features a bronze statue standing atop a Corinthian column. Although many like to think that Columbus is pointing toward the New World that he was credited with discovering, the statue is, in fact, aiming his finger toward Algeria.
