My girlfriend took me at that place in the evening and it was wonderful with the enormous flag of España and all the beauties around. There are benches for some rest. We had a fantastic time there. ?

We spent a good half an hour checking out this plaza. It is a plaza built in honor of Christopher Columbus whose real name was Cristobal Colon, hence plaza colon. The plaza was called Plaza Santiago before but was rename to honor Columbus in 1893 in honor of his discovery of the new world. The square has what I was told is the largest flag in Spain, as well as two monuments. On one side is a statue of Columbus pointing west (the way he sailed), on the other side is a monument that is basically concrete sculptures that are decorated with inscriptions by Spanish philosophers and leaders. Enjoy!

Plaza Colon is worth a look, especially the huge flag that dominates the plaza. Sculptures were interesting and very unique.

The Plaza De Colon holds on of the most beautiful statues, unfortunately the only way we could figure to get a good look at the statue was be vehicle. The statue is located in a round a bout and the endless Madrid traffic goes round and round. The carvings are so very intricate and beautiful

The Columbus Monument at the Plaza Colon is very impressive and has good sculptures. The plaza also sports a huge Spanish flag, the biggest that can be seen in the city. They have finished working on the floor of the plaza.
