Photo 205. Plaza de Colón.
Plaza de Colón, Madrid

Plaza de Colón. This is one of the four massive stone blocks designed by Joaquín Vaquero Turcios that commemorate the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus. Carved in the stone are the names of the crewmembers who in 1492 sailed from Spain aboard the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa María in the quest for a new world.
