Torre Agbar

sights / Architecture

Lonely Planet review

Barcelona’s very own cucumber-shaped tower, Jean Nouvel’s luminous Torre Agbar, is among the most daring additions to the skyline since the first towers of La Sagrada Família went up. Completed in 2005, it shimmers at night in shades of midnight blue and lipstick red. At the time of publication, the Hyatt group was in negotiations to purchase the building and transform it into a luxury hotel.
