Barcelona is a lovely city, specially seen from above. We have chosen the best panoramic views of the city, from excellent viewpoints, some of them unknown. Even some people living in Barcelona have no idea about these wonderful places.
Montjuïc and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya
Montjuïc is a perfect place to enjoy fantastic views of Barcelona. There, in the top of the hill, is located the National Museum of Art (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). This museum exhibits all kinds of art; from sculptures to photography and paintings. There you will find a wonderful atmosphere and very good views of Barcelona! Do not forget to check this place out.
Bunkers del Carmel (Turó de Rovira)
“Bunkers del Carmel”, near the neighborhood of Guinardó, is such a great place from where to see the city. The Bunkers were anti-aircraft emplacements during the Civil War, but now they are a meeting place of modern urban and street culture. Views of Barcelona from there are awesome: you can see everything, from the port at the south of the city up to the mountains. If you visit it during the summer, you must put sunscreen and bring water with you. We recommend a picnic there… and enjoy the scenery! You can take a walk in this area, too, because it is so quiet.

We want to show you some of the most charming 5 star hotels in Barcelona from where you can see the best views of the city.
Hotel Arts is one 5 star hotel next to the beach in Barcelona and is one of Barcelona’s most luxurious boutique hotels. Its location is amazing, right in front of the sea, and from the 360º terrace, on the top floor, you can see splendid views.
