Best Views in Barcelona: Discover the City’s Amazing Hills

One of the best things about Barcelona is its incredible location. The Mediterranean on one hand and the mountains on the other create a unique atmosphere that attracts people from all over the world. If you are lucky to come here, maybe if you stay at Aspasios Boutique Apartment, you will be able to enjoy Barcelona’s amazing beauty. Throughout the city, you will find several spots that feature great views. But what are the exact places with the best views in Barcelona? Here we’ve got some suggestions:

Montjuïc

Park in Montjuïc

The Montjuïc hill is probably one of the best-known places among tourists and locals. This has to do both with its natural beauty and the big number of museums, parks and other sights you can find there. There are many viewpoints at Montjuïc where you have astounding views over Barcelona. The location of Montjuïc Castle offers truly breathtaking views over the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, the views from outside the Catalonia National Art Museum (MNAC) allow you to see the city in all its beauty. This place is also great to see some 1992 Olympic stadiums and the Magic Fountain show in the evenings, even though right now is cancelled due to the Pandemic.

Tibidabo

Tibidabo

Tibidabo hill is another well-known point of interest. It is located somewhat outside the city. In order to get there, you can either take a cable car, a taxi, or a bus (T2A) from Plaça Catalunya. Tibidabo is chiefly known as the place that features Spain’s first amusement park. It also boasts a wonderful neo-Gothic church built at the beginning of the 20th century by the Catalan architect Enric Sagnier. And of course, there is this incredible view over the city, with all its streets, parks, buildings and the blue sky over the tender Mediterranean.

Turó del Putxet

The Turó del Putxet is one of the lesser-known Barcelona hills. While lower than Tibidabo, it is closer to the city centre. Thus, Putxet is an ideal place for those who don’t want to spend too much time travelling around the city. The park on the top of the hill was created at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, it is very popular with local residents. The Putxet park features mostly Mediterranean trees and is a really great place to sit down and relax while enjoying amazing views over Barcelona.

Turó de la Rovira

Turó de la Rovira

Some years ago, the Turó de la Rovira was just one of the many Barcelona hills. Its location in a neighbourhood rather far away from Barcelona’s city centre, apparently without any sights, made it a place where tourists seldom appeared. However, after the city government decided to restore the historic site that was used as an air-raid shelter during the Spanish Civil War, the so-called Búnkers del Carmel has become a major point of attraction for tourists. Once you have succeeded to climb up the hill you’ll understand why. The view from Turó de la Rovira over the city is absolutely unique. Definitely a must for any Barcelona visitor.

Turó de la Peira

Turó de la Peira

The Turó de la Peira park is a real hidden gem. Its location in a residential neighbourhood on the outskirts of Barcelona makes it quite an unknown place among tourists. However, the place is really worth it. In fact, the Turó de la Peira is the only spot in Barcelona from where you can see the Mediterranean and the Collserola mountain range. It is also a great place for a family picnic and offers thus a wonderful opportunity to relax.
