Agbar Tower

A 144 meter skyscraper in the shape of a missile that stands out on Barcelona's skyline, built with technologies that significantly reduce the need for energy for the facility. At night the building is lit with yellow, blue, pink and red lights thanks to a system of 4500 LED on its surface.

Where: Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes. Subway: Glories


Olympic Quarter (Vila Olimpica)

Vila Olimpica is an area on the coast that was involved in a major renovation project for the 1992 Olympics. During the warm months it is a very popular meeting place which extends from the Olympic Harbor along the beach with a pleasant seaside promenade (Passeig Maritim) and an extensive green area. The two tallest skyscrapers in Barcelona stand behind Port Olimpic. At night the Harbor becomes one of the "coolest" spots in the city.

Subway: L4, Vila Olimpica


Olympic Stadium

The Olympic Stadium, open space of the Anella Olímpica and Sant Jordì stadium are wonderful facilities built for the Olympics in Barcelona. They can be visited daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and until 8:00 p.m. from May to September.

Public transportation: Subway L2/L3, Parallel + Montjuïc funicular.



The former Casaramona, a modernista industrial architecture by Puig i Cadafalch, was renovated in 2002 based on a design by the Japanese Arata Isozaki, which transformed it into one of the most cutting edge exhibition spaces in Europe. It also houses the permanent art collection of the La Caixa foundation.

Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA)

This new architectural space is part of a major renovation project for the Raval quarter, which was once in decline and unsafe. The totally white building is the work of American architect Richard Meier, who did a wonderful job of playing with the natural outdoor light to light the interior.

Where: Plaça dels Angels. Subway: L1/L3, Catalunya; L1-L2, Universitat.


Centre de Cultura Contemporània (CCCB)

Next to the MACBA, the CCCB is a large space for exhibits, meetings and concerts created by reusing a former 19th century hospital for the poor. A modern extension with mirror covered walls has been added to the older building.
