The most romantic places of Barcelona
Barcelona – is one of the most romantic cities of Europe, but it’s quite difficult to find there an isolated spot for a date. There is always a risk to get lost in the crowd of tourists or in an impetuous vortex of the local life. But there are still some sheltered corners in Barcelona, where you can have a little privacy.
Park Güell – is a fabulous creation of Antoni Gaudí and one of the most popular touristic spots. But even there you have a little chance to find solitary. To do that you should come to the park to the open hour and make your way to the one of its galleries starting from the main square. Its numerous stone columns make it a great place for a romantic hide-and-seek and give a wonderful background for your pictures – like you are in some mysterious grotto.
Another less popular but actually not less beautiful park of Barcelona is located on the neighbor hill. Labyrinth Park of Horta got its name due to the green labyrinth where you can perfectly “get lost” together. Besides you can take a walk along the park’s ponds, have a rest in its arbors and take great pictures without tourists’ crowds on the background!
Many travelers know about the little gothic bridge connecting two houses in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Every day great number of tourists comes under its arch to admire its beauty, to take pictures and to get some romance. But the best moment for that is definitely the night, when ancient streets are filling with mysterious silence, strangers’ shadows and Spanish guitar sounds coming from far away...
The best place for watching the sunset in Barcelona is Tibidabo mountain. The top of the mountain is occupied by the Sagrat Cor Church and it offers a spectacular view over the city. Most of the tourists come here to see an amazing sun performance but forget about a picturesque mountain panorama on the other side. So if you are looking for a solitude, make just a couple of steps from the main view point and enjoy the sunset. By the way, don’t forget to take your “sun on the palm” pictures!
