5 Best Photo Spots in BARCELONA

Best Photo spots in Barcelona

I have been to a lot of cities around the world, but there’s one that will always be my favourite. Maybe being born here is an important reason, but also the fact that I love getting lost in its streets. If you haven’t visit the city yet, in this post I want to show you some of the best photo spots that you cannot miss when you come to Barcelona.

Aunque viaje a muchas ciudades por todo el mundo siempre habrá una que será mi favorita. Quizás el haber nacido aquí hace mucho. O también el hecho de que me encanta perderme por sus calles. Hayas visitado Barcelona o no, en este post quiero enseñar algunos de los mejores lugares preferidos para hacer fotos que no os podéis perder al visitar Barcelona.

1. Búnkers del Carmel

There is no discussion about this spot. The views of the city are amazing and that is why this is one of my favourites. One of the best plans for me is going up there to enjoy the sunset and the views of the Mediterranean Sea. Sounds good, right? 🙂 

No hay discusión para este sitio. Las vistas son increíbles y por ello es uno de mis favoritos. Uno de mis planes preferidos es subir a ver el atardecer con el Mediterráneo de fondo. Suena bien, ¿verdad?

2. Torre Agbar from Museu del Disseny

This tower stands 144 metres tall and you can find it at Plaça de les Glòries since 2003. Its design makes the building part of the skyline of Barcelona and it’s considered the new symbol of the city.

3. Carrer del Bisbe

This is one of my favourite streets in the whole city, no doubt. You can find it in the Gothic Quarter and I’m sure you have seen pictures of it more than once. I also recommend getting lost in the area and walking along its streets, you’ll find beautiful spots! 

Esta es sin duda una de mis calles preferidas en toda la ciudad. Se encuentra en el Barrio Gótico y seguro que la habéis visto fotografiada más de una vez. Aun así, recomiendo que os perdáis por la zona y caminéis por sus calles porque seguro que encontráis muchos más lugares bonitos!

4. Plaça de Sant Felip Neri

I told you there were more spots in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona that were worth a visit and Plaça Sant Felip Neri is one of them. It’s a place that must be visited because you’ll find a lot of historic elements that make this square very attractive. It’s even better when everything is in silence and there’s no one around.

Os dije que en el Barrio Gótico de Barcelona habían más sitios que merecían la pena y la Plaza Sant Feliz Neri es uno de ellos. Es un lugar que hay que visitar sí o sí, ya que podréis encontrar muchos elementos históricos que hacen la plaza muy atractiva, sobretodo si no hay nadie y está todo en silencio.

5. Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya

If you happen to visit Plaza de España you’ll probably spot Maria Cristina’s Avenue and the amazing building on Montjuic hill at the end of the street. It’s the MNAC (Museu nacional d’art de Catalunya) and even though is beautiful from any perspective, my favourite views are from the cascades and the Montjuic fountain.

Si pasas por Plaza de España seguro que no puedes evitar fijarte en la Avenida Maria Cristina y el impresionante edificio que puedes ver al final de la misma. Es el Museo Nacional de Arte de Catalunya, y aunque es bonito desde cualquier perspectiva, mis vistas favoritas son desde las cascadas y la fuente de Montjuic.

The camera I use the most is mi iPhone 7plus. But when I visit a place I like I try to take my GoPro hero 4 because it takes pictures in a completely different way and I love it!

La cámara que más uso para hacer fotos es la de mi iPhone 7plus. Aun así, siempre que visito un sitio que me gusta mucho llevo conmigo mi GoPro hero4, ya que hace fotos de una forma muy diferente y me encanta!

  1. I spent a week in Barcelona last summer and loved the city! We didn’t make it to the bunkers though, which is a bummer. But we did spend lots of time in the gothic quarter, on the beach and eating patatas bravas 😀
    I definitely want to go again!

    1. So cool! The Gothic Quarter is one of my favourite places in the city, I’m glad you liked it! Don’t forget to visit the bunkers on your next visit! 😉

  2. Barcelona… the jewel 🙂
    I totally agree – this city is simply amazing and we fell in love with it as well. So many great places that you mention here, especially the Museum Nacional is just from the architecture breathtaking. Your shots from the whole city, especially with the Sagrada de Familia are amazing, great post 🙂

    1. Hi Hendrik! I love places where I can see the jewels of a city from above, and the bunkers are one of them. I hope you visit the city again one day! 😀

  4. I was in Barcelona a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. The Gothic Quarter was definitely my favourite area to explore, so photogenic indeed. The only place I didn’t get to visit on my itinerary was Museu Nacional D’Art De Catalunya and now I’m really kicking myself because it looks stunning. Next time, hey? Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. Hi Sasha! The Gothic Quarter is one of my favourite spots as well, I love getting lost around there! And MNAC is so close to Plaza España, you can go in your next visit 😉

  5. I need to go to Bareclona one day, since basically I’m next door to Spain (whenever I’m in POrtugal). My cousin goes to Spain regularly and I just love the look of Spain. These are gorgeous photos and great information given.

    1. Hi Susana! Sure you have to come, you’ll love it! And I have to visit Portugal as well, I’ve always wanted to go, specially to Lisbon and the south!

  6. Barcelona is my favorite city in Europe! I love how you picked a different angle to write a post about it and my favorite picture is the one you did in front of Montjuic fountain – beautiful! Seeing this pics makes me want to go back soon.

    1. Hello Nadine 🙂 I wanted to show some of my favourite pictures and angles of the city. Probably these ones are a bit «typical», but I’ll try to find many more on my future posts. Thanks for your comment 😉

  7. Those shots of MNAC are gorgeous. It’s been so long since we visited Barcelona, but your lovely photos make us want to get back soon. Hopefully we can visit later this year and use these great photo spots that you recommended.

    1. Hi guys! Sure, visiting Barcelona is always a good plan! I hope you come back soon 😉

  8. How awesome!!! My present series on my blog too is on Barcelona!!! The Gaudi architecture is just too mind blowing and unbelievably colorful! Unfortunately I missed some of the places you mentioned. 🙁

    1. Yees!! I checked your last posts, you loved the architecture of the city! I hope you can visit the spots you missed on your next visit 😉

    1. Yes! That’s what I try when I post pictures like the ones on the post, to make people visit the city! 🙂 I hope you plan a trip here soon!

  10. Oh this is beautiful! Love the photos and the different views! I’ve done a similar post on Prague so totally understand how much fun this was to write! And I really admire that you’re writing in two languages, I’ve always wanted to do that but I’m just crap at writing in Czech ugh. xx

    1. Hi Tereza! I’m glad you like them! I would like to go to Prague so I’ll check your post as well 😉 I think is good to write in two languages because you can have much more audience. You could try with Czech 😀
