Tower of Telecommunications in Montjuic
The Tower of Telecommunications was designed by architect Santiago Calatrava. It was built for the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992 for the telephone company Telefónica. The tower is also known as the 'Telefónica Tower' or 'Calatrava Tower'.
The orientation of the tower makes it act as a sundial, projecting the shadow of its hand on the Plaza de Europa. It is now a symbol of Barcelona and another attraction for tourists visiting the city.
