If you are looking for a spot of tranquility and calm in the city of Barcelona then there is no better place to go than Horta-Guinardo Barcelona. Located to the north west of the city centre, the area of Horta-Guinardo offers beautiful green spaces with stunning viewpoints.
From here you can enjoy and admire the whole city from afar whilst still having great connections to the centre. Horta-Guinardo Barcelona is one of the most extensive areas in the city and features mountains, valley, steep hillsides and winding streets.
The area contains many beautiful parks including Parc de Collserola and Parc del Laberint. Parc de Collserola is the largest metropolitan park and you can find a fun maze in Parc del Laberint to get lost in with the kids. Don’t forget to check out El Bunker del Carmel where you can see spectacular views of the whole city minus the tourists. It is located close to Parc Guinardo and is a bit of a climb. Not many tourists know about this local treasure which may be a blessing in disguise as you will not find hoards of tourists here. It takes a while to get to the bunkers but it is definitely worth it as it offers breathtaking views of the city.
Although the area is further out of the centre, it offers silent and peaceful green spaces which the centre lacks. Horta-Guinardo is perfect for families. However, if you want to visit the bustling and lively city centre, you can easily take the metro (L3, L4, L5) or bus. It takes no time at all to get round Barcelona and Horta-Guinardo offers the perfect balance between the city and suburbs.
