Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia and second biggest urban area in Spain in terms of both size and population, still remains a city without many tall structures, partly due to the protected status of most of its central area — Eixample.

Even so, the recent trend in architecture in recent years has been promoting the construction of high-rise buildings as part of a wider modernisation plan that has been taking place since 1992, the year the Olympic games were held in Barcelona.

The third tallest structure in the city, and properly the tallest building, is incidentally a world-famous religious building (Sagrada Família) that happens to be unfinished.
