The Bunkers are absolutely our favourite spot to enjoy the view of Barcelona. You can reach it by walking from Park Guell in just 5 minutes.
Since some years ago it was not a popular place to visit but, in recent times, it’s turned in one of the most important tourist spots of Barcelona.
Now it’s the perfect place to chill and spend some good time with your partner or friends, enjoying the best views during sunrise or sunset.
Thanks to their strategic position, the Bunkers were used as anti aircraft warfare during the Spanish Civil War, fought from 1936 to 1939.

Everyone knows Sagrada Familia, the most popular church in Spain, visited by over 4-5 million visitors every year.
In addition to being one of the most important monuments of all the times, this is also an incredible viewpoint thanks to its height.

Tibidabo is the highest mountain in Serra de Collserola and one of the several peaks that dominate the skylines across Barcelona.
