Since the 1992 Olympic Games, Barcelona has a majestic work of engineering designed by the English architect Norman Foster, the enormous telecommunications tower of Collserola. Its silhouette has become a symbol of Barcelona, visible from far away. Located 268 meters above the hill of Vilana, in the Sierra del Tibidabo, the Collserola Tower is the tallest building in the city and dominates the entire Barcelona plain.
The tower consists of a 13-storey building (429 m2 per floor) supported on a concrete shaft and topped by a 38-meter steel tubular mast.

Collserola Tower Viewpoint

On the 10th floor, at 560 meters above sea level, there is a glazed viewpoint open to the public from which can be contemplated a full 360 degree view of the city and the metropolitan area. To access the viewpoint, visitors use a panoramic elevator that runs 135 meters in 2.5 minutes.
