Today I'm doing a post about one of the places we went in Barcelona! I found the Bunquers del Carmel on a post about Barcelona in the Girls Love Travel Facebook group which is one of my most favourite things in the world!
The Bunquers are an amazing viewpoint up a hill in an area of the city that isn't too far from where we were staying, near Mount Tibidabo. It's a relatively steep climb but not too challenging at all and I think we went up a strange route as my family were convinced that I was making this place up but the views at the top are completely worth it!
The bunquers were also used as anti air craft batteries in the Spanish Civil War to protect the city from bombings so a trip up to the Bunquers provides you with a beautiful viewpoint and a little bit of history! You can see all the cities viewpoints from the banquets including Sagrada Familia and best of all, it's all free! We went up in early evening and there were quite a few locals there with picnics but it was nowhere near as busy as other tourist viewpoint spots in Barcelona so I would definitely recommend it to get a panoramic view of the city!
