One of the best things about Barcelona is that you get it all: city life, beaches and mountains with beautiful views! Here are some places you must visit if you want to experience Barcelona from above!

 

 

Tibidabo

Tibidabo is over 500 meters high and at the top of the mountain there is a church, an amusement park and several great restaurants, one of them is Mirablau. Go there with someone you like, perhaps on a first date. Standing on top of a mountain with a view so beautiful it will leave you breathless will really set a romantic mood to the date. Seeing the whole city stretch out at your feet with the most astonishing view will make anyone fall in love.

It is not very crowded and you can easily find quite a few spots to be alone with your company.

Bunkers del Carmel (Turó de la Rovira)

The Bunkers del Carmel means spectacular 360º panoramic, bird’s eye view of Barcelona. Go there with your best friends, bring blankets, snacks and cava (there is no place to buy drinks or food there) and stay up all night. Then watch the remarkable sunrise over the entire city and sea.
