THE BEST VIEWS OF BARCELONA
The skyline of Barcelona is one of the most special of the great capitals. With its sea of bottom the most significant constructions emerge: from the Agbar tower to Montjuïc, passing by the Sagrada Família, the Mapfre towers, the W hotel or the Columbus monument, among many others. A beauty that you can only enjoy living in a luxury property in Barcelona.
Finding a place from which to get good views is simple. There is a great variety of places to enjoy but you will only enjoy if you have the privilege of living in a luxury property in Barcelona.
TORRE DE COLLSEROLA
It is one of the most famous structures in Barcelona and its location gives it a special role, despite being physically out of the urban fabric. Built on a hillside in the Collserola mountain range, the Telecom Tower designed by Norman Foster on the occasion of the 1992 Olympic Games dominates the whole panorama of the city and it is impossible not to see its silhouette, especially at night.
The 288-meter high tower has 13 floors, one of which is destined for the lookout (the 10th floor), which is located at a height of 115 meters which, if you add the height of the tower itself, you will find 560 meters above sea level, a height enough to feel that you have Barcelona at your feet.
The Parc Güell may not be a conventional lookout point and is definitely not its biggest plus, as it is one of the wonders of Antoni Gaudí that has made Barcelona what it is. But since we are going to visit this peculiar park, why not take advantage of its views?
Its location in the upper reaches of Barcelona provides magnificent views, especially on clear days and the panorama of banks undulating covered in trencadís, with the view of the Hotel Arts and Mapfre Tower with the Mediterranean bottom is priceless. In this particular case, the biggest problem will be to prevent anybody from appearing in the photo.
MUSEU NACIONAL D’ART DE CATALUNYA
The current museum, which exhibits an extensive collection of Romanesque works from Catalonia and Aragon, is located on one of Montjuïc’s promontories, with Reina Maria Cristina Avenue and Plaza España at its feet. After the long stairway that precedes the museum, there is a wide viewpoint that shows in particular the Sants district, the old bullring of the Arenas, as well as the Montjuïc fairground and the Tibidabo in the background, but certainly the best Show offered from this esplanade is the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, one of the most beautiful shows in Barcelona.
It is not as high as the Collserola Tower, but the viewpoint from the Tibidabo and its amusement park is one of the best panoramas in Barcelona. Just a step after getting off the Tibidabo funicular, this viewpoint is free and offers the possibility to enter the Temple of the Sacred Heart, the same building that every night stands out for its enormous brightness from almost anywhere in Barcelona.
The Tibidabo amusement park, the oldest in Spain, is the most original and fun way to enjoy Barcelona’s sights, although I also recommend a visit to the Fabra Observatory, a historical building that is curiously the oldest observatory in the world. Remains in operation. The entrance to its gardens is free.
