Rosa María Alvarado Patiño shares in The Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia a series of photographs with the Torre Glòries in Barcelona as the main protagonist.

“It is one of my favorites!”, He assures, before indicating that “it is the third tallest skyscraper in the city and whenever I go through the Sant Martí district, it captivates me”.

“It is a work registered in the architectural heritage of Catalonia, it has 34 floors and 9 elevators”, details the author of the snapshots.

“I just need to find out if you can access the top floor to have a panoramic view of the city,” he says.

The Torre Glòries, formerly Torre Agbar, is a skyscraper in Barcelona located at the confluence of Avenida Diagonal and Calle Badajoz, next to Plaza de las Glòries, and which marks the gateway to the city’s technological district, known as District 22 @.

In addition to these 34 floors above the surface, it has four underground floors for a total of 145 meters high, becoming, at the time of its opening (June 2005), the third tallest building in the Catalan capital, only surpassed by the Hotel Arts Barcelona and the Mapfre Tower (both 154 meters high).

The tower was designed by the architect Jean Nouvel and is one of the modern icons of Barcelona.
