Monument to faith in discovery

  • Punta Del Sebo - Huelva (Huelva)

The Monumento a la Fe Descubridora, or monument to faith in discovery, is one of the most notable symbols of the city of Huelva, which knows it familiarly as the "monument to Columbus". Dated 1929, it is located at the Punta del Sebo, two kilometres from the town centre where the Tinto and Odiel Rivers meet, and is the work of the American sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. It represents the figure of a Franciscan friar from the monastery of La Rábida, whose friars, armoured in their faith, played a crucial role helping Cristopher Columbus in what is known as the "gesta descubridora" or feat of discovery.
