Spring will soon be here and this means we can enjoy sunny spring days outside in Barcelona. For this reason, one of the things we like most in Barcelona, is to have an invigorating coffee or a refreshing beer on a beautiful terrace with exquisite views of the Catalan capital. There are many places that have a terrace with beautiful views and today, ShBarcelona will give you some alternatives to choose from to enjoy a terrace with views of the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Enjoy your drink from a terrace in Barcelona
Barcelona is a beautiful city and it offers a multitude of wonders, such as emblematic monuments, modernity, design, culture, gastronomy, good weather and beautiful Mediterranean landscapes. We have spectacular beaches in Barcelona, beautiful urban parks and a large area with forests, that allows us to contemplate the skyline of Barcelona in all its splendor. Therefore, the first terrace we want to recommend, is located in the natural park of Collserola, a place where Barcelonians like to play sports, go hiking or simply disconnect from the big city. The Gran Hotel La Florida is a charming hotel complex located near the highest part of the Collserola mountain range, in Tibidabo. This hotel offers the possibility of having a delicious brunch on its magnificent terrace, enjoying the exceptional views that the location offers. If you prefer to enjoy a terrace in the center of the city, you can do so at the hotel, located at Rambla del Raval 17-21. You can admire 360º views of Barcelona on the roof of this hotel. In addition, the terrace has a pool, which you can even use without staying at the hotel. In the evenings there is a DJ for entertainment purposes, and this leads to endless hot summer nights in the swimming pool with excellent music, while a delicious cocktail awaits you at the bar.

Another ideal alternative to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea (with food) is restaurant 1881 per Sagardi, which has a magnificent terrace with splendid sea views. Located at the Museum of Catalan History, this excellent restaurant offers rice dishes and seafood casseroles, fish and seafood, and superb finger-licking meats. Finally, we would also recommend a much more modest bar, where you can savour some tapas, get hydrated with a good beer or drink a delicious coffee, and of course, with excellent views of Barcelona. It is called Mas Guinardó, a traditional mansion in the neighborhood and a cultural reference in Barcelona. This beautiful building has a long history related to the city. Initially it was a farmhouse that was built in the fifteenth century. It underwent several renovations over the years. Its walls have endured many relevant historical moments and now it is a mansion with nice views. There is a bar that serves meals on the wide terrace. You can enjoy tapas and menus, and enjoy absolutely privileged views from the comfort of your seat. Facing the sea, its location makes it a very sunny terrace, ideal for the pleasant days of spring.
