The Serra de Collserola, or simply Collserola, is a mountain range between the rivers Besos and Llobregat in the city of Barcelona.
It is part of the Catalan Coastal Range. These mountains separate Barcelona from the Valles plain and their tallest peak is the Tibidabo, at 512 m. Other main summits are: Turó del Puig, Puig d'Olorda, Turó de Valldaura, Turó de la Magarola, Puig d'Ossa and Puig Madrona. The valleys of the Llobregat and Besós Rivers, the plain of Barcelona, and the Vallès basin, mark the geographical boundaries of the Collserola massif.
On the Vilana hill, of 445 m, stands the Torre de Collserola (Collserola Tower), a telecommunications tower built in 1992 for the use of Olympic games. It is 288,4 m and was built by the British architect Sir Norman Foster.
