Torre Glories Mirador

The Torre Glories is a skyscraper in Barcelona, Spain. It has the tallest height of any building in Spain. The tower was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel who also designed the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. The tower’s height is 143 meters tall and has 34 floors.

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. It attracts more than 10 million visitors each year to its museums, architectural landmarks, beaches and gastronomic delights.

Barcelona is well known for its mixture of Art Nouveau buildings by famous architects like Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner’s Palace of Catalan Music. Barcelona offers architecture tours which offer stunning views of the city’s most iconic structures.

In the Spring 2022, the Torre Glories (formerly known as the Torre Agbar) opened a new mirador, or lookout point open to the public.
