Summer is around the corner and warmer days are already here. Yes to beach walks, sangrias and tapas outdoors! Barcelona is one of the best cities to chill under the sun. So what about packing a lunch and enjoy it outside? Here is a list of the Best Picnic Spots in Barcelona! We picked 5 places for anyone to enjoy: families, lovebirds, friends. Are you up for some solo time? No worries, you’ll find your perfect green area in the big city.
1. Parc de la Ciutadella
This is a classic spot in Barcelona to chill on the ground and soak up some sun. There is a huge expanse of green space to relax on and tons of areas to choose from. You can’t go wrong with it. PARC DE LA CIUTADELLA offers a variety of activities.
Meet other people picnicking and playing, listen to some street artists, join a yoga class or take a boat ride in the lake inside the park. Also, if you are touring around Barcelona but still want to slow down a bit, this park is the ideal place for you. Nearby you have the cultural center of EL BORN and also the super famous Arc de Triomf.
2. Jardin de Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer in Montjüic
Another classic, and also a cooler way to visit one of the hotspots of Barcelona. In fact, not everyone knows you can enjoy a picnic with a wonderful view of the Fountains of MONTJUÏC. Go during dinner time so you can fully delight in the magical and colorful fountains show. Spice up your average tourist itinerary, grab some food, and make time for this unique experience.
Montjuic is a corner of nature lost in the heart of the city. There are several parks here, all of which are very pleasant and which also have the great advantage of offering a view of the port and the city. We highly recommend the gardens of the Mirador de l’Alcade.
3. Bunkers del Carmel
An all-time favorite. But you have to hike a little to get there! Take it as your adventure of the week! It is 100% worth it. As a reward, you’ll have a beautiful picnic with one of the best views of Barcelona: super instagrammable. Bunkers del Carmel is always a good idea. Usually, you find large groups of people chilling, drinking some fresh beers, and of course, picnicking! But if you’d prefer to enjoy the spot mostly on yourself, make sure to get there early in the morning. Take a picture of the sunrise!
4. Jardín de Diagonal Mar
One of the biggest and most beautiful parks in Barcelona. This option is a must-do for families with children. In fact, the park is well-known for its huge slides. But even adults can try them and feel like they are kids again. Most importantly, you have picnic spots all over the area. So… what are you waiting for? Pack your favorite snacks and head to this fun park!
5. Parc del Laberint d’Horta
A ROMANTIC, special place. One of the oldest parks in the city. Barcelona has plenty of areas to explore and hidden gems to discover, and this green paradise in the HORTA DISTRICT is one of them. The real attraction is the PICTURESQUE LABYRINTH. Then, get lost in it or simply enjoy the relaxing surroundings. Also, before the entrance, you can find a picnic area. So right after your tasty meal, you can finally dive into the dreamy gardens. Certainly a great activity for anyone. The playground makes it even more suitable for children.
