Looking out over Barcelona

Bunkers del Carmel in Barcelona

It’s no secret that Barcelona is a wonderful city. There’s the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the leafy squares in El Born and the glamorous shops and restaurants of Eixample. This city has everything.

Sometimes though, it’s nice to get out of the city and in to the open. Montjuic is the quickest fix- located to the south of the city, the mountain has a hand full of beautiful parks with vistas over the city.

An alternative destination, and a firm favourite is the Bunkers del Carmel. Set back from the city on Turó de la Rovira, in the district of Carmel you will find old anti aircraft bunkers built in 1938, during the civil war. Today, it’s a popular spot to enjoy panoramic views of the city and enjoy sunset.

How to get to El Bunker del Carmel

Getting to the Bunkers is straight forward from the city. You can either catch the bus from Paseig de Gracia, or jump on the metro from anywhere in the city.

By bus

Line 24, 92, 114 or 119 from Paseig de Gracia or Placa Catalunya.

By metro

Line 4 (yellow) to Alfonso X or El col.


Catching the metro will leave you with a steep walk up the hill, whereas the bus goes right to the top

Regardless of how you get there, the view is well worth it, and it’s the perfect place to spend the evening with someone special!
