today clarify a common confusion among visitors and countrymen of Huelva. The Columbus Monument and the Monument to the Faith Discoverer. Both worth visiting and admiring.
De between those usual confusion in every city, Huelva also has his. And today we bring this up is sovereign size.
If the traveler asks the streets of Huelva by “Columbus Monument” almost certainly friendly interlocutor will tell you in detail how to get to Punta del Sebo , located on the outskirts of the capital of Huelva.
And once in the right place, situated two kilometers from the urban area, the confluence of the rivers Red and Odiel , the traveler contemplates a human figure leaning on a cross, in stone 37 meters high , a style say “cubist” , facing the river and covered with a blanket. In his pedestal are various reliefs representing the Aztec, Inca, Maya and Christian cultures. The interior of the pedestal is hollow, and it can be found grounds relating to the discovery and the names of both the discoverers who traveled on the ships and the members of the foundation that contributed to its creation. A sculptural group representing the Catholic Monarchs also appears.
This observing the traveler is not the “Monumento a Colón” despite appearances, is the “ Monument to the Faith Discoverer “. Represents the figure of a Franciscan monk of the Monastery of La Rabida who, clad in their faith, played a crucial role in helping to Christopher Columbus called “discoverer deed.” Mainly highlighted the contributions of parents Fray Antonio de Marchena and Fray Juan Perez. Commonly this is confused with the figure of Christopher Columbus himself.
And this is the error. The authentic “Columbus Monument ” , is located in the Plaza of the Nuns of the capital of Huelva a few meters from our Hotel Monte Conquero . It is a statue pedestal dedicated to Christopher Columbus, sculptor Elias Rodriguez Picon opened in 2011.
Rinse the mess, both are worthy of admiration and a good excuse to enjoy the corners of Huelva.
