The tower is closed until the third quarter of 2019. Originally conceived as a water tower to supply water to the inhabitants of Barcelona, this tower was never used for it's original purpose as it was found that the water was not safe for human consumption. Uniquely for a building of this nature, it's made entirely of bricks without any metal support. At 51 metres, the tower looks majestic, especially with the spiral staircase on the outside of the tower about 40 metres up. Shame it's currently being renovated.

This tower is a landmark in Poblenou. It was initially planned to reach a height of 80m but construction ceased at 51m. It was inaugurated in 1882.At that time it was the tallest building in Barcelona. Its purpose was to store and supply water to the city but due to poor quality the water was directed to industrial purposes. Refurbishment of the structured was completed between 2010/2012. The tower is brick construction with basic ornamental features. Good for a photo.

Off the beaten track. Great context to connect with the area of Poblenou. Historic details and great views.

The last Saturday of the month they offer a night tour finishing with an amazing and romantic view all over the city of Barcelona and a glass of cava. As it was only my partner and me, the tour guide, who by the way was so passionate about the history of this tower, even offered to do the tour for us in English. The tower is designed by famous architect of modernism Pere Falqués who also designed the benches you find around the street lamps of paseo de gracia. After making our way all up to the top of the tower we enjoyed an amazing night view all over the city and finished the tour back down having a nice chat with the tour guide while having a glass of cava.

Stumbled across this, if that is possible for such a large object. It was free on the day but 2 Euro to view from the top from where you could see all over Barcelona. Lots of interesting art and sculptures with friendly helpful staff. The building itself is redundant water tower built entirely of brick and had a solid beauty all of its own. The climb is quite steep and not for the faint hearted.
