Collserola Tower (Torre de Collserola) Tours

Rising high from the top of the tallest mountain in Barcelona, the Collserola Tower’s unique design has made its mark on the city’s skyline. Built for the 1992 Summer Olympics, at 288 meters high (946 feet) it is used as a radio and TV transmitter that broadcasts throughout Catalonia. Outside of its functional use, it has an observation deck with some of the best views of the surrounding city, mountains, and sea. From its windows you have 360 degree views from the highest vantage point in all of Barcelona.

The tower appears futuristic, almost like a needle pointing toward the sky. It takes two and half minutes to reach the observation deck, but you’ll be rewarded with views that can reach as far as 70 kilometers on a clear day. The experience is almost like seeing Barcelona from the sky. (Helicopter tours are really the only way to get a better view.)

Practical Info

The tower is located in the Tibidado mountain part of Barcelona, which is accessible via the funicular. To get to the observation deck, take the lift to the 10th floor which is open to the public on weekends. Admission is €6 for adults and €4 for children.
