The torre calatrava is a 119 metres tall tower which marks barcelona's skyline. It has the double function of a telecommunication antenna and sundial. which I found quite interesting. Another interesting detail is that the angle of its "stem" has the same angle as the sun-light on the day of the summer solstice. Maybe one day it will be remembered as the modern stonehenge

Address: montjuic
Directions: next to the Olympic Tsadium. bus 51 or metro. Espanya, then take the rolling stairs
