Christopher Columbus is one of the most recognized names in history. His voyage in 1492 redefined the globe then launched European explorations, conquests and colonization of the New World. So, when you are standing before his tomb at the Seville Cathedral, you are in awe. After his death in 1506, the remains of Cristóbal Colón were moved to several places during the next four hundred years: Valladolid (Spain), Seville, Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), Havana (Cuba) and finally back to Seville in 1898. The pallbearers sculpted by Arturo Melida represent the kingdoms of Castile, Aragon, Leon and Navara.
