Plaza Cristobal ColónGénova, Italia, 1451 - Valladolid, España, 1506.

Los hombres que buscan conocer el universo en que vivimos no se detienen ante nada. Cristobal Colón fue uno de ellos.Italiano de nacimiento, portugués como navegante, español por necesidad, y americano por convicción, Colón no conoció fronteras ni obstáculos que le impidieran cumplir con su misión.
Movido por su vocación de navegante y por la inquietud de explorador, fue capaz de cruzar el mar para descubrir el otro lado del Océano y pisar la tierra del Continente Americano en octubre de 1492.
En reconocimiento a su valor, a la inquebrantable firmeza con la que llevó hasta el fin su gran hazaña, se levanta esta plaza y dignifica el monumento al hombre, al investigador y descubridor que abrió una nueva época en la historia de la humanidad. Abril de 2014English translation:
