The Columbus Monument, 60 meters high, was built to commemorate the triumphant return of navigator Columbus from his first expedition to the Americas in 1492. On top of the monument is a statue of Columbus. Barcelona was the first place to hear Columbus officially announce the discovery of the New World and the description of the strange new world. The majestic cylindrical monument was built entirely of ochre marble with two lines "Glory belongs to Columbus" and "Salute to Columbus". Columbus at the top of the cylinder, made of melted cast iron from cannons in front of Montjayk Castle, is the largest Columbus statue in the world. It shows Columbus's gaze, his right arm pointing to the ocean ahead, and he faces the New World of America. There are five flying goddesses around the center of the pillar, eight huge black lions around the base, inscriptions of Columbus's voyages, and sculptures of King Ferdinand and Queen who supported his expedition at that time. The location of the watchtower is also meaningful. It is the end of Lambra Avenue and the starting point of the port area. It symbolizes the connection between the city centre and the harbour. The reliefs on all sides of the base represent Columbus's discovery of the New World. On the west side of the street is the Queen of Spain's voyage to Columbus; on the north is Columbus's voyage sailing boat, with the words "Columbus dedicated the New World to the Kingdom of Castillia and Leon" on the earth below; on the east, Columbus presented his voyage plan to the bishop; and on the south, Pilar's image of the Virgin. She was the patron saint of the discovery of the New World. Below are the names of the three ships that made their first voyage. Below the monument is the entrance to the Madrid Art Center and a large sculpture depicting Columbus's voyage. The wax museum is opposite the statue in Columbus Square. The lion was ravaged by N kinds of shapes.
