Lugares - parques, jardines y plazas - Plaza de Colón
It was first called Gutiérrez Semprún Square because he favoured the city’s growth by conceding land. On April 23rd 1931 it was renamed Pablo Iglesias Square. On August 12th 1936 it was decided that it should be called Columbus Square. Located at one end of Acera de Recoletos Street, it is in close proximity to the train station, the Campo Grande Park, Paseo de Filipinos Street, Station Street and Gamazo Street. In the centre of the square there is a large monument to Columbus by Antonio Susillo which is surrounded by stone benches and little gardens making its contemplation a very agreeable experience.
