“Enjoy nature in the city”

Barrio expo

Expo 2008 was an international exhibition focusing on water and sustainable development and was an extremely important event for the city of Zaragoza. The transformation was so great that we dare say that, after the event, it became an entirely new city.

The area known as the Ranillas meander and the banks of the River Ebro went from being a space of little use to the city to being a green area filled with riverside vegetation, water parks, bars and restaurants and an area of ​​development and fun for everyone.

Structures were built here which have since become iconic buildings, worthy representatives of a modern city always looking forward. Here are some of the most important ones:

 

Torre del Agua (Water Tower).

Its name comes from the fact that its footprint is the shape of a drop of water. As a result,the building takes on a different shape depending on which angle you look at it from.Inside the building, you’ll find the Splash sculpture, 23 metres high and 9 metres indiameter, designed by Program Collective and developed for Expo 2008 by Pere Gifre using fluid and dynamic simulation systems.
