Carmel Bunkers

Carmel Del Bunkers

Carrer de Maria Labernia, s/n

This civil war gun emplacement gives the best panoramic views of the city and it’s free! 

Top Tip: this place is popular with locals and tourists but it gets busy at sunset. If you want it all for yourself, go there for sunrise.  It’s not far from  Parc Güell so it may be a good idea to do both together.  Take water!

"The World Begins with Every kiss"

Love is in the air and on the thousands of ceramic tiles that make up this stunning mosaic created by Joan Fontcuberta.

It’s right in the heart of the Gothic quarter.

Laberint D'Horta

Palo Alto

Come for the food and music festival on the first weekend of every month sure but what most people don’t realise is that this cool, urban hangout is open all month.

We love this place.

Arc De Triomf

This has to be one of the most popular instagram locations in Barcelona if the amount of times our writers have nearly crashed into people holding up their phones is anything to go by, and it’s easy to see why, it’s magnificent.

Catch the light right and the shot will be mesmerising.

Caso Battló

One of Gaudi’s masterpieces on Passeig De Gracia.

The entire exterior of this Gaudi design is tiled with pieces of glass and ceramic in a mosaic style and the roof, the dragonback, is worth the cost of entry alone.

Sagrada Família

The big beast.  No visit to Barcelona is complete without a visit here.

Take your picture from the park across the small lake.

Cactus Garden Monjuic

Secret one this.  Thousands of cacti in a gorgeous park that makes us want to whistle something from a Sergio Leone movie.

Magic Fountain

If it was good enough for Freddie Mecury and Montserrat Caballe then it’s good enough for us. And it’s free!

Check time table for show times.
