Tibidabo is a theme park that has been providing fun days for families and friends for over 100 years. But aside from the thrilling rides, the park provides stunning views over Barcelona, across to the Mediterranean sea and Montjuic in the East. Go for a ride in the park’s colorful Ferris wheel and snap a couple of shots of the city.

Parc de Montjuïc

If you want a striking photo from the opposite end of the city, there is only one place to go: Parc de Montjuïc. For the most comprehensive view of the city, go straight up to the top of the park, by foot or cable car, and get ready to start shooting.

There you will find the imposing beauty of the medieval Castell de Montjuic, which boasts a 360-degree viewing platform with incredible views of the city over to Tibidabo. And if you head to the other side of the castle, you can take some striking photos of the Montjuïc Cemetery or the mind-boggling expanse of the commercial Barcelona Port.
