Bunkers del Carmel
A stunning panoramic view of the city located on the Turno de La Rovira Mountain is a prime location to enjoy a nice glass of wine as you watch the sunset over the Barcelona coastline.
Mercat del Born
The Museum of el Born, designed in 1973 by Antoni Rovira, is a former public market located in the Ribera neighbourhood and is known as one of the most important buildings in Barcelona. Enjoy a lovely afternoon exploring the history of the city in one of its most stylish and hip areas. This location is perfect for socializing, dining, and truly immersing yourself into Catalonian culture.
In our opinion, Tibidabo might have the best panoramic view of Barcelona. A place where the whole family can enjoy a day in a medieval theme park on top of the Tibidabo mountain, while indulging in some delicious chocolate dipped churros. Discover our Tibidabo City Tour.
There are many reasons why this city is so enchanting. The contrast of mountainous landscapes and deep blue ocean water makes Barceloneta a prime tourist location for dining, lounging, and partying. Discover our Barceloneta City Tour.
The largest Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona designed by the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi is a must see when visiting the city. We highly recommend partaking in the interior tour of the church; the architecture is amazing! Tickets can be purchased online for a discounted price or at the church ticket office for 18 euros. Discover our Sagrada Familia City Tour.
The beautiful public park located on Carmel Hill is another of Antoni Gaudi’s and Maria Jujol’s architectural gems within the city. The city view from the top of the hill is breathtaking, making it a perfect location for beautiful pictures.
The team at Drive Me Barcelona considers this location as the perfect place to grab a delicious ice cream, lie back and relax while looking at the astounding surroundings.
Parc de la Ciutadella
Located across the street from Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella is considered to be the perfect place to escape the fast paced city life. The parc has become the “central park of Barcelona” where tourists and locals come together to enjoy a nice picnic in the park or participate in dancing lessons and work out sessions.
If a breathtaking view and an unforgettable experience is what you seek while on your visit to Barcelona, then Montserrat is the place for you. The monastery of Montserrat dates back to 1025 A.D. and has become a cultural landmark for locals and tourists alike. Although Montserrat is located an hour away from the city, the local buses and metro systems make it very easy to enjoy the experience. We have an exclusive road tour to visit Montserrat.
