Barcelona waterfront

Cristobal Colon - Christopher Columbus to us, and don't ask me how they got the one name from the other - presides over the avenue bearing his name, and points up the Rambla (possibly the most famous street in Spain) toward Placa Catalunya, the heart of Barcelona. We will tactfully ignore the fact that Columbus has no connections that I know of to Barcelona itself - Sevilla stakes the biggest claim to him.
