The Torre Glòries, formerly known as Torre Agbar, is a 38-story skyscraper located in the heart of the Catalan capital. It is found in Barcelona’s tech start-up and business hub of Poblenou. 

The tower was originally designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, and stands at 144.44 m high with a diameter of 39m. The tower was completed in June 2005 and was officially opened by King Juan Carlos I on 16 September 2005. 

The building was originally owned by the multinational group Agbar, which based itself in the tower. In 2017 it was purchased by Merlin Properties real estate group and it was renamed as Torre Glòries after the name of the adjacent square.
