Barcelona is, of course, one of Spain’s most romantic cities and a top destination to whisk your loved one away to in order to propose. Whether you’re popping the question on Valentine’s Day or simply a weekend getaway, here are our top spots to propose in Barcelona.

Parc del Laberint

Parc del Laberint

Horta’s Parc del Laberint is one of Barcelona’s lesser-known spots – a hidden, magical park in the hills towards the north of the city. At the centre of this vast, sculpted garden sits the park’s namesake – an enchanting bottle-green labyrinth. Make your way through the maze together, and when you reach the centre where a statue of Eros (the Greek god of love) stands, get down on one knee and pop the question.

Parc del Laberint, Passeig dels Castanyers, 1, 08035 Barcelona, Spain, +34 666 67 77 22

Mount Tibidabo

Mount Tibidabo

Mount Tibidabo is the highest point in Barcelona, providing stunning romantic views over the city and the Mediterranean Sea beyond. Ask that all-important question from the balconies of the Sagrat Cor church, or for something a bit kitsch and quirky, head inside the old-fashioned theme park and propose on the Ferris wheel. For some more privacy, head down the mountain a little bit and find a bench with a lovely view.

Bunkers del Carmel

Bunkers del Carmel

For the very best vista in the whole of the city, hike up to the Bunkers del Carmel on Turó de la Rovira hill, offering jaw-dropping 360-degree views over Barcelona and beyond. These old Spanish Civil War bunkers may not sound romantic, but as soon as you see that panoramic scene, you’ll forget about their past. Locals gather up here at sunset to drink, picnic and play music, so if you want a little more privacy, make your way here at sunrise instead.

Bunkers del Carmel, Carrer de Marià Lavèrnia, s/n, 08032 Barcelona, Spain, +34 932 56 21 22

The Magic Fountain

The Magic Fountain

Barcelona’s Font Màgica, standing in front of the magnificent Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya near Plaça Espanya, truly is a magical sight, filled with light, colour, music, and, of course, water. Imagine getting down on one knee to a romantic soundtrack with this dazzling display before you. The Magic Fountain show takes place nightly between 8–10 pm, depending on the time of year.

The Magic Fountain, Plaça de Carles Buïgas, 1, 08038 Barcelona, Spain

Plaça Sant Felip Neri

Plaça Sant Felip Neri

This charming little square, hidden down the backstreets beside Barcelona Cathedral, is without a doubt one of the most picturesque in the city. What’s more – not too many tourists know about it, so there’s a chance you may just have it to yourself. Sit on the edge of the central fountain and ask your loved one for their hand in marriage.

Tres Cruces, Park Güell

Tres Cruces, Park Güell

The bottom of Gaudí’s Park Güell may indeed by packed with tourists snapping away with their cameras, but if you hike up to the top of the free section of the park, you’ll find many secluded spots. If views are what makes it romantic for you, then climb up to the Three Crosses, carved from stone, and propose in front of a magnificent scenic backdrop.

Tres Cruces, Park Güell, Av. del Coll del Portell, 72I, 08024 Barcelona, Spain

Restaurant Mirablau

Restaurant Mirablau

Food and love often go hand in hand, and restaurants are, of course, a classic place to propose. For stunning romantic views and delicious food, head up to Restaurant Mirablau, located just before the funicular up to Mount Tibidabo. Choose to sit on the outdoor terrace or inside by the panoramic glass windows. Don’t forget to order an aphrodisiac as part of your meal. There’s also a bar and club downstairs if you feel like celebrating afterwards.

Restaurant Mirablau, Plaça del Doctor Andreu, Barcelona, Spain, +34 934 18 58 79

On a sunset cruise

From the mountains to the sea – our last pick is to book a sunset cruise to sail along Barcelona’s gorgeous coastline. Some companies will also throw in nibbles and champagne to make your sail extra special.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
