Barcelona is a place of contrasts, and perhaps one of the best places where one can see it is several hundred meters high. From there, we look at the sea, the harbor and the mountain of Montjuic; also the Eixample and the industry that moved all Poble Nou and the Barcelona of the period.
From there we see Collserola, or maybe just the opposite; perhaps from the foot of Collserola we approach, metaphorically, to the movement that never stops, the streets of the Catalan capital.
Discover it is up to you now. We will give you the five proposals that take advantage from the heights. From the luxury of the Àtic to the maximum simplicity of a beer and a potato chips of Cofap before enjoying a meal at Mirablau.
#1 Hotel Clarís Terrace
Generally, good views in Barcelona are very related to luxury hotels of the capital. At least that is what happens with the downtown view from the terrace of the Hotel Claris where you can go, for a cocktail, dinner or to enjoy good music.
In the Condes de Barcelona Hotel, Paseo de Gracia close to Diagonal, we will have a privileged space that combines La Pedrera and the Sagrada Familia. We also can enjoy good music (especially, funk, rock and groove) and snacks.
In the Pullman Hotel, the Àtic shines. Accompanied by an overview of the golden fish of the artist Frank Gehri, which occupies the front of the Casino of Barcelona, in the attic of the hotel we can find an exclusive service, a breathtaking sea view, a pool bar and solarium. What else do you want?
At the foot of Collserola, the Mirablau combines quality cuisine with spectacular views; and yes, it is a restaurant and not a terrace, right? Well, in this case they take care of everything! Remember that you can also take advantage of the Gran Hotel La Florida, very close to Mirablau, overlooking the entire city.
#5 Café Modernista
If what you’re looking for are panoramic views, the Café Modernista will offer a different experience. Because the Café Modernista, located within the grounds of the former Hospital de Sant Pau, offers panoramic views of the Gaudí Avenue and Sagrada Familia,.
Here finishes our list of the top 5 terraces with views of Barcelona, and we have forgotten many, no doubt. As the Wet Deck (W Hotel), the Camp Nou Lounge, Zacapa or Merbeyé, among others. But we think the point is clear, right? The “terracing” is hotter than ever!
