Where to Find the Best Views in Barcelona

Where to Find the Best Views in Barcelona

Tucked between rolling mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is undeniably beautiful, and a few spots in particular offer the best views (and photo ops) of the Catalan capital. Here’s where to find them. 

Sagrada Familia Towers

One of Barcelona’s most famous attractions also offers one of the city’s best views. Take an elevator to the top of one of the church’s bell towers for a panoramic view of the city from its center as well as a close-up look at the ongoing construction work and architectural detail. 

Tibidabo Amusement Park

The 100-year-old amusement park atop Mt. Tibidabo overlooks the city and is one of the best places in Barcelona for panoramic views, especially if you’re traveling with kids in tow. Make the most of your time by prebooking admission, or opt for a guided tour of the mountain.

Montjuïc Mountain

This hill on the outskirts of Barcelona has numerous lookout points with excellent views of the city below. Zip around on a Segway tour to soak up the vistas from the Mirador of Poble Sec and Montjuïc Castle, or take it all in from the rooftop terrace of the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

The Mediterranean Sea

Seeing Barcelona from the water offers a different perspective on this alluring European city, so hop aboard a catamaran or wooden boat for an afternoon cruise or sunset sail that allows you to relax and enjoy the views.

Park Güell

No trip to Barcelona would be complete without a visit to Gaudí’s impressive Park Güell, home to one of the city’s most recognizable vistas. Prebook a skip-the-line ticket to spend less time waiting in line and more time admiring the view.

Teleferic del Port

For a more dynamic view of Barcelona from above, take a ride on the Teleferic del Port, a cable car running from Barceloneta Beach to the top of Montjuïc. The 10-minute ride travels some 330 feet (100 meters) above the ground at its highest point, offering sweeping views of the city and the sea.
