The Torres de Hércules (English: Towers of Hercules) are office buildings in Polígono Industrial Las Marismas, Los Barrios in Province of Cádiz. The building is 100.6 m (330 ft) tall and was completed in October 2009. The telecommunications antenna on top is 26 m (85 ft) tall. Each of the towers is 20 m (66 ft) in diameter. These towers were the tallest in Andalusia until Cajasol Tower was completed in Seville in 2015.
The towers are inspired by the Pillars of Hercules which were the two mountains on either side of the sea which signified that no one could go beyond the Straits of Gibraltar as the Atlantic Ocean started and this was uncharted. The two 20 storey towers are linked together by a glass hall way.
