Torre Agbar is a 38-story skyscraper shaped like a bullet that towers over the city. While residents didn’t initially accept it, the building is now a symbol of architecture and the Catalan capital. Unfortunately, you can enter only the ground floor. Since the building hosts the city’s water company, there are often temporary exhibits with water-related themes. View this attraction by way of bus tours that travel the city, or even from a helicopter tour.

This building is like the Barcelona version of the Gherkin in London. The Torre Agbar is much like the Gherkin in shape, it’s a distinctive piece of contemporary architecture that stands out in a relatively open area. The coloured square panes that cover the exterior is a mixture of red and blue shades that remind me of the sunset or sunrise. The colours of the building are further accentuated by the nocturnal illumination. Definitely worth coming here both night and day to see the contrast.
While I am not blessed enough to have entered this icon tower, I can say that this tower is an important part of Barcelona. The city would not be the same without it. The architecture is unique, but still tasteful and not too ostentatious. I hope to one day enter this FINE building and get to enjoy from the inside.
