contributed by li

The telecommunications tower was built in the Tibidabo Hill, on the occasion of the Olympic Games in Barcelona, 1992. With its 288 meters high, is the tallest building in the city. Is the hub of telecommunications in Catalonia, broadcasting 100% of the Television and 95% of radio we hear in Barcelona and its metropolitan area. The tower itself consists of three parts: a concrete shaft of only 4.5 m. diameter for a total of 205m height, a tubular steel mast of 38m and culminating the total, a stretch of lattice of 45m. The bold structural design has required a very unique construction process, based on the construction of different ceilings on the ground, which had to be hauled by the central axis of concrete, previously built up its site to more than 70 meters above soil. The 13th floor is open to the public allowing a panoramic perspective of the city. If weather conditions are good your eyes can reach the Pyrenees.
