Barcelona, a photo a day

Torre Agbar


I am a really lucky guy! Yeah! Amongst other reasons, I am fortunate enough to have a large terrace in my flat on the last floor of my building, and this is the view! The thing in the back, the same you can see in the title bar, is the Torre Agbar, Agbar Tower, so called because it is the headquarter of the Barcelona Waterwork, AGua de BARcelona, therefore AG BAR.

A few facts… 142 meters, built by the french architect Jean Nouvel, sustainable, and illuminated at night (on weekends and public holidays). They also have a nice website, http://www.torreagbar.com/, check it out!

Anyway, this is the view from the breakfast table!!!

Oh yeah, before I forget… Thanks for all your comments, nice morale booster! And I am extremely happy to welcome my first follower, Julie from down under!

  1. It reminds me somehow to the Gherkin in London.

    Beautiful view to have breakfast with 🙂

  2. It’s a fascinating piece of work but I haven’t decided whether I like it or not. Fantastic view from your apartment though. And I’m seconding Jacob’s suggestion for a night shot! 🙂

  3. You are indeed lucky to have such a view. And that is a most interesting tower! Perhaps sometime you can capture it at night all lit up?
