The El Carmel Bunker offers incredible views over Barcelona. Climb to the top of Park Guinardó, and above it you’ll find the Turó de Rovira. The mountain top look-out point once held Catalan airstrike defense bunkers that can still be seen in ruins.
As most of you know, there are tons of sights in Barcelona. Luckily, there are still a few “secret” places, not overtaken by tourists. I was taken to one of them by a Catalan friend of mine, born and raised here and therefore full of inside knowledge about the city.
3. Have a picnic at the bunker If you want to find the best panoramic views over Barcelona, head up to the Bunker del Carmel. This idyllic spot makes for a great place to bring a picnic and watch the sun setting over the Barcelona sprawl. To get here, take metro line L4 (yellow) to station Alfons X. From Alfons X, take exit Ronda de Guinardo, cross the street and turn left. From here, you have to walk up a hill for about 25-30 minutes. I promise you, the view is worth it!
