Leisure Attractions in Barcelona
Maremagnum - Monument a Colom
At the end of "La Rambla" there's the harbor. We are now on the bridge over the sea that links "Maremagnum" with "La Rambla". At your left, you can see the Columbus monument. The discoverer of America is pointing in the wrong direction, because he points to the east at the Mediterranean Sea, and America is on the other side to the west.
"Maremagnum" is a very successful new shopping and free time area. You can find here 12 cinemas, the Imax, and a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and discos. Night life begins here around 11 pm and lasts till 6 am, but if you are 20 or older, this is not the place to be --too many teenagers.
