Churches viewing points
The heart of the city's Gothic Quarter gives you the opportunity to enjoy some of the most stunning views of Barcelona from the city's pre-eminent religious building: the cathedral. Climb up to the cathedral rooftop and get a sense of what the medieval builders experienced while it was being built.
An unbeatable viewing point boasting 360º vistas. You'll walk over architectural structures that will help identify the building techniques used by the master builders of the Middle Ages. A walk among towers, spires and domes that will allow you to find the most iconic landmarks on the Barcelona skyline and appreciate the sculptural details that can only be seen from the rooftop.
One of the Barcelonians’ most cherished churches holds secrets that can only be seen from above. A unique opportunity to discover how one of the most stunning Gothic churches in Catalonia was built, with a viewing point overlooking the Ribera, the medieval artisans’ district surrounded by elegant mansions.
The embodiment in stone of a challenge moved by the faith of the seafaring community in the area centuries age. Ventilation ducts, supporting structures and a unique view of the rose window, are just some of the rewards awaiting you.
Just a few metres from La Rambla, you’ll find one of the best vantage points overlooking the city. The bell tower of the Gothic church built in honour of Saint Mary of the Pine. A spiral staircase winds its way to the top of the five-storey tower, which is 54 metres high. A journey in space and time that will allow you to relive unforgettable episodes from history, such as the arrival of troops to attack the city. This excellent vantage point made it possible to warn the people in the neighbourhood that they were drawing closer.
You'll find a bell tower with some of the city's most surprising views not far from Barcelona Cathedral and the Museu Picasso. You can enjoy a unique experience in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, between two of the old town's busiest arteries: La Rambla and Via Laietana. The visit to the highest point in the basilica, with 21st-century Barcelona at your feet, marks the end of a visit that begins with the 7th-century archaeological remains found under the building.
This is Barcelona's viewing point par excellence. It is the highest point in Barcelona, rising up 600 metres over the city. The Sacred Heart of Jesus Church of Atonement crowns the top of Mount Tibidabo thanks to the building skills of the modernista architect Enric Sagnier. A unique landmark boasting stunning views of Barcelona, its metropolitan area and beyond, and, around the church, the Mediterranean in all its splendour and the plants and trees on the Collserola ridge. Towering above it is the monumental statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus who welcomes us with open arms.
The views from this matchless vantage point, known as the Torre dels Ocells, or Tower of the Birds will give you an idea of the importance of this historic neighbourhood in the city. Crossing the threshold, climbing up to the bell tower and walking on the rooftop are much more than a visit. You'll feel as if you are taking part in a treasure hunt with clues that invite you to identify Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance elements.
The church was part of a now-defunct monastery, which was home to a community of nuns from the Order of Saint Peter. Its origins can be traced back to the early 10th century and it is named after the current neighbourhood of Sant Pere. The church remains as a privileged witness to one of Barcelona's most vibrant neighbourhoods.
