Top 5 places to watch Sunrise/Sunset in Barcelona.
1.Bunker del Carmel – Panoramic views of Barcelona from Spanish Civil War bunkers where anti-aircraft guns were installed. When the weather is nice, all of the locals sit up there drinking and playing music. The 360 views are honestly breathtaking.
2. El Camí del Mar, Montjuïc- As you can see, there’s a beautiful view of Barceloneta beach and the port of Barcelona. The colours of the sky at sunrise were incredible. You’re often joined by dog walkers and joggers at sunrise, but it’s lovely to meet the locals and talk to them.
3. Tibidabo Amusement Park- I only discovered Tibidabo after walking down from Bunker del Carmel. Unfortunately, this was a few hours before my flight. I’m already planning a trip back, and this will be the first place I visit.
4. Montserrat – It is multi peaked rocky range located near the city of Barcelona. Once you reach Montserrat, there are different walking routes you can take to each peak. You can take the funicular, cable car, or even walk to the summit of the mountain if you’ve got the time. If you’re lucky, you will catch the locals dancing the Sardana dance (the traditional Catalan dance). They also have a hostel at the base of the mountains if you want to stay up there (The Guilleumes Hostel).

5. Barceloneta beach- It consists of bars, restaurants, bike/scooter/longboard hire, volleyball nets, sand sculpture making and also a lot of alley ways just off the beach that are perfect for photos. I hired an electric scooter and rode along the beachfront at sunset, it was incredible. The sky was pink/purple, and I would recommend to sit and watch the sun go down here.

I hope you enjoyed this post; I recommend you see all of these places if you visit Barcelona.
Thank you for reading! Let me know what you would like me to write about in the comments and whether I should do more short ‘travel guides’.
