New symbols of the city

The Glòries Tower, former Agbar Tower, is the third tallest building in Barcelona with 142 meters and 34 floors, after the Hotel Arts and the Mapfre Tower. Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, it was inaugurated in 2005 and is characterized by its shape and its night lighting. Nouvel's design is influenced by representative elements of Catalan culture, such as Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, and its geography: It is not difficult to see in the tower the rounded shapes of the Montserrat mountain.

One of the most characteristic elements of the Glòries Tower is its nocturnal illumination, consisting of 4,500 LED devices that can generate moving images. The system relies on an efficient energy system managed by sophisticated software which allows to reduce energy costs so that one hour of lighting costs only 6 €. This icon of the city, however,  is not illuminated every night, only on special days.

Visit the Torre Glories

Now it is possible to climb the Torre Glòries. On its 30th floor, 125 meters above the ground, you can enjoy impressive views of Barcelona. But that's not all, because before going up in the elevator and in the same lookout, you will be able to visit an interactive museum with state-of-the-art technology and a floating art installation.
