Torre Agbar is a 38-story skyscraper shaped like a bullet that towers over the city. While residents didn’t initially accept it, the building is now a symbol of architecture and the Catalan capital. Unfortunately, you can enter only the ground floor. Since the building hosts the city’s water company, there are often temporary exhibits with water-related themes. View this attraction by way of bus tours that travel the city, or even from a helicopter tour.

  • This is a little known attraction is plaza de glories next to Torre Agbar, in which my recommendation is to visit with children since it has a light installation, featuring light fixtures mounted on the ground and that can activate them screaming through a post and the sound waves become waves of light.

  • Height 144m, 4 3 34 floors + basement° tallest building in Barcelona .9 elevators. The building has 4,500 LED luminous devices that use the technology and enhance the creation of bright images over the entire surface of the building. It also has outdoor temperature sensors that automatically adjust the opening and closing of shutters building glass, reducing in this way the energy consumption for air conditioning.

  • Pretty cool building, with a nice shopping mall right next to it (they're still working on it however).
  • Pretty cool structure. The area is really nice too. Still under construction, a lot of work being done.
  • Impressive building that's a cool landmark to use at night. The facade is louvres which help ventilate the building
  • It looks more like a bullet than a dildo if you ask me. It looks nice but definitely not worth it to visit. If you're going to the design museum you'll be seeing the building anyway.
  • One of the most unique buildings in Barcelona, somewhat reminiscent of the 30 St Mary Axe building in London. At night its quite diatinct since it shines in red and blue light. Certain nights of the years the color scheme differs.
