Our beautiful hike starts with a transfer to the west of the city. The walk begins in the Gracia district (140 m/460 ft above sea level) following a path through the forest inside the La Creueta del Coll park (245 m/800 ft above sea level). Here you will have wonderful views of Tibidabo, the highest point in Barcelona. The walk continues along steep streets, passing by the old Romanesque church of “Mare de Déu del Coll” originally build in the 11th century and renovated in the 20th century. You will then cross the small square of Gibraltar, walking by “Can Mora”, an old farmhouse (1730) transformed into a nursing home. Further on a stony uphill path will lead you to the dry summit of “Turó del Carmel” (266 m/872 ft), also known as “Muntanya Pelada’” because of its scarce vegetation, giving you stunning 360º open views over Barcelona, as if the city was at your fingertips.
After descending, the hike continues with the climb up to the third peak: “Turó de la Rovira’” (261 m/856 ft). This is a heritage area from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) offering 360º panoramic views as you walk around the remains of the anti-aircraft battery and military barracks. Walking downhill you will then cross over the wooden Muhlberg bridge, built on top of an old quarry, reaching the historical romantic park of Guinardó, filled with dense vegetation and water canals. After a refreshing walk through Mediterranean forest, you will reach your transportation to drive back to the hotel.
