Barcelona Telecommunications Tower
The Barcelona Telecommunications Tower for Telefonica is 288m high, built on a hill just north of the city.
Elegant Hi-tech design, visible from huge swathes of the city. There are not many examples of Hi-tech buildings in Spain (more a British phenomenon) and this is worth a trip if you are in the city for a few days, possibly combined with a visit to Park Guell (also in the north of the city but not as far out).
