Barcelona is a magnificent city to visit as a couple . And not only because of its beaches and its artistic and cultural heritage, but because it hides a lot of wonderful corners that many do not know, especially those who do not have the pleasure of living in Barcelona.
Taking advantage of the fact that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, today we want to take a tour of some of the most romantic corners of Barcelona . If you plan to spend Valentine’s Day in Barcelona, it is worth taking a look. Of course, our list will also be very practical if you live in or around the Catalan capital or if you plan to visit it at some point with your better half. Would you like to join us?
First of all, we want to tell you about the Labyrinth of Horta, one of the most romantic corners of Barcelona. You can walk hand in hand or play to see who gets to the center first, where the source of Eros, the God of Love, is located. You will also have a great time playing hide and seek .
Parc de la Ciutadella
If you don’t want to stray too far from the city center, you can also choose to visit the Parc de la Ciutadella. Here you can take a boat ride or have a picnic on the grass.
How could it be otherwise, we must also talk about Parc Güell, which was designed by the genius Antoni Gaudí . It is always full of tourists, but surely you will love to walk hand in hand with your partner. You will discover wonderful and surprising fountains, bridges and pergolas and you will be able to enjoy wonderful views of Barcelona.
It is not one of the most touristic places in Barcelona but, without a doubt, it is perfect for a romantic plan. We are referring to the Fabra Observatory, which is located on Tibidabo, offering spectacular views of Barcelona. In addition, from mid-June to October you can enjoy outdoor dining here.
The Montjuic Fountains are a very touristy place, so if you are looking for privacy, this is not your place. However, it is worth seeing, especially at night, with its play of lights and colors.
Dinner in El Born
Barcelona is full of restaurants but, without a doubt, one of the best places to enjoy a romantic dinner is the Born district. In addition, after dinner you can enjoy a pleasant walk through one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city.
A drink in a magical bar
Of course, in Barcelona you will also find numerous places to have a drink after dinner. Among the best bars to do so, we highlight El Bosc de les Fades, located in the Wax Museum; the Caseta del Migdia, which is located on Montjuic, offering wonderful views; and the Sky Bar , which is located on the top floor of the Grand Central Hotel, in the Born district that we mentioned before.
You can also enjoy wonderful views from any of the Collserola viewpoints, one of the natural places in Barcelona that is worth visiting.
Another super romantic plan is to spend a few hours in an Arab bath . In Barcelona you can find several corners where you can relax with your partner, but we want to highlight Aire de Barcelona and the Hamma Spa, Rituels d’Orient.
