- Breakfast with a view.
The best breakfast to have is at the beach, but in winter it is pretty cold to stay there early in the morning.
You can choose 2 options of having a great sunrise, or you go in winter time, and you can wake up at 7am, and you will be on time, but a little bit chilly. Or you can watch the sunrise in summer, but you have to wake up at 4am to get to the sunrise.
- Enjoy the city views from Bunkers el Carmel or Parc Guell.
For more place where to have spectacular views over the city, you can find here.
Bunkers el Carmel became very popular last years through instagram, even some locals didn’t go there. But, the views are just amazing.
With such views, I am sure, your partner will get in love with you even more. And yes, the kiss is just something that comes with the respiration.
Tip: Go during the week if you can, on the weekend there are more people.
- Visit a SPA.
Barcelona is full of offers for SPA and each one has its very own characteristics. We usually go, to one, that is close to our home. But, apart of the individual SPAs that you can find on the web, you can try any spa offer from a luxury hotel.
The service in a hotel is always great and the experience is unforgettable.
4. Watch a movie with the stars at Montjuic’s Castle.
Ok, this romantic tip, can be only enjoyed in June, while Montjuic opens its doors to an open air cinema. You can bring a blanket, some food and drinks, or to rent a nice hammock and enjoy the movie.
More romantic than this, I just can’t imagine anything.
Nice panorama from Barcelona on your feet as well as history around you, that is Montjuic castle.
During winter time, you can enjoy the views over Barcelona, and to feel the history of the castle.
5. Experience the wonder of The Magic Fountain
When for the first time I saw the Magic Fountain of Montjuic, I was so impressed, that I was coming back over and over again with all the people who visited us. For couples is just soooo romantic to watch this. Check the timings, as in winter and summer time, they work differently.
The show generally runs on weekends during specific hours, so be sure to take a peek at this schedule so you can plan a visit. The crowds get large, so arrive early to claim a spot!
I am sure, this 5 romantic things to do in Barcelona will help you to enjoy the city with your partner in a very special way.
