The skyline of Barcelona is well known by its unique attractions like Sagrada Familia, Torre Agbar, the Collserola Tower in Tibidabo or the mountain of Montjuich, just to put some examples. But what are the best places in Barcelona to see them all in a glance, in a good panorama?
Today we’ll show you our favorite panorama spots for enjoying the views over Barcelona and get this perfect photo:
Parc d’Atraccions del Tibidabo, in the mountain of Tibidabo
This is probably the most well-known spot because it gives an absolutely amazing and complete panorama view of the city of Barcelona. The theme park that is placed just below the church in the top of the Tibidabo mountain gives some nice spots over the city. Also recommended at night, when all is quiet, there is barely no one there, and you can enjoy the views of the city lights.
Miramar, in the mountain of Montjuich
The Hotel Miramar is build in the mountain of Montjuich, heading to the sea and the city, and has a beautiful public garden accessible from the road that goes from Colon up to the mountain. You get a south-to-north view of Barcelona that it’s even better at afternoon and dawn, because the sunlight comes from the left-back side.
Mirador de Vallvidrera, in the road up to Tibidabo
If you visit the Tibidabo spot and you are driving up in the road that goes from Sarria to it, just stop at the Mirador de Vallvidrera. From here you get a view of Barcelona and the surrounding municipalities. This place is well known because, at night, is the place where lovers go to enjoy a romantic evening with the city at it’s feet.
Bunkers de El Carmel, in the Turó de la Rovira hill
In the middle of the city, near to Parc Güell, locates the Turó de la Rovira hill. On the top of it are the old anti-aerial batteries and bunkers from the Spanish Civil War, nowadays one of the most famous places to enjoy the views from the city. To the bunkers usually go all young people to sit and talk with the views, and is also a famous location for photo and video shots of local artists.
Mirador De La Cornisa, in Teià
Go a little bit further north and you’ll soon get to this spot. A little bit far from the city, this place must be reached by car. It’s located in the municipality of Teià, in the unpaved road from Vilassar de Mar to Can Bartomeu. The views from here, on a sunny day (better in the mornings), are truly amazing. Barcelona in the foreground, the big sea on the left and the mountains surrounding the city everywhere (the spot is, in fact, placed in the very mountain). An unique place that not many people know and is worth a visit. Take a good camera with a good zoom lens!
Eclipse Club, Hotel W
Dress your best clothes (strict dress code in this club), take some money to have a drink and head to Eclipse Bar in the top of the Hotel W in the end of the La Barcelona beach. The absolutely amazing views that can be seen from the Eclipse Bar, are worth it!
