Torre de Collserola - Collserola Tower
The Telecommunications Tower of Collserola (Torre de Collserola) opened in July 1992 for the Olympic games in Barcelona. The tower is 288 meters high and is located in the Collserola hills near Tibidado. The exact location is known as Turo de la Vilana and is situated 445 meters above sea level. The tower rises a further 268 meters from this height. There are thirteen platforms between the 84-metre and the 152-metre points of the Tower.

The tenth platform has been designed as a Public Viewing Deck and is 560 meters above sea level. The glass elevator ride is breathtaking as are the superb views of Barcelona city, the Mediterranean Sea and the Catalan backlands, which can be seen up to distances of over 70 kilometres on a clear day. The viewing deck is reached from inside the mountain by means of an elevator which travels up the outside of the concrete shaft.
