Description:

Plaza de Colón (Columbus Square) is dedicated to explorer Christopher Columbus and the European discovery of the Americas, but for a contemporary touch, a massive Spanish flag flies in the dead center of the square. The statue of Columbus that once dominated one side of the square was relocated to the middle of the roundabout, but on the other side you can still see the large concrete sculptures representing the discovery of the Americas. Hidden underneath (on the Paseo de la Castellana side) you will find an arts center and a theater.
