Passeig de Colom

Passeig de Colom
  • West Route

Paseo Colón was the first attempt to connect the city to the sea by means of a large avenue, and it was first opened for the World Fare in 1888. The hosting of the Olympic Games in 1992 meant the recovery of the shorelineand the creation of new beaches, plus the regeneration of the city’s seafront. This renewal included the extension of the promenade along to the new Olympic Port and the construction of the Moll de la Fusta (The WoodenPier), a pleasant avenue lined with palm trees. At the end of The Ramblas and continuing along Paseo Colón we can see the Colombus Monument. You can go for a harbor ride on one of the “Golondrinas” pleasure boats or aboard the modern catamaran “Orsom” or on the Cathelicòpters.
