Torre de Collserola information
Sir Norman Foster designed the 288m-high Torre de Collserola telecommunications tower, which was completed in 1992. There is an external glass lift to the visitors’ observation area, 115m up, where there are some magnificent views - up to 70km on a clear day. All of Barcelona’s TV and radio sets are transmitted from here, and repeater stations across Catalonia are also controlled from this tower.
