Glories Tower (Torre Gories) Tours

Glories Tower (Torre Gories)
Scan the Barcelona skyline and Glòries Tower (Torre Glòries) will no doubt be second in line to catch your attention — second, that is, after those iconic spires of La Sagrada Familia. Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, the tower's shape is said to have various inspirations, including the rocky peaks of nearby Montserrat Mountain, the quirky shapes of Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, and the bubbling form of a geyser (appropriate since the building’s owners also include Barcelona’s water company as part of their portfolio).

While interesting to spy from afar, the tower is even more intriguing up close, and especially so at night. That’s when the green-energy-driven building puts on its best show by lighting up with some 4,500 LED lights that produce a rainbow of luminescent colors. Located in the industrial-meets-bohemian Poblenou neighborhood, Glòries Tower is unfortunately not open to the public. But those exterior views are free, and the surrounding area ripe for discovery, making it an important addition to any Barcelona itinerary.

Practical Info

Note that the tower’s interior cannot be visited, and that the ideal time of day to see the building in all its glory is after dark. While you can get to Torre Agbar by public transport, there are other ways to explore it, including by bike, helicopter, and hop-on hop-off bus tour.
Address: Av. Diagonal, 211, Barcelona, Catalonia 08018, Spain
