Barcelona’s best spots to see fireworks

Barcelona could be considered to be the ‘Fireworks Capital’ of Catalonia. In fact, it’s almost impossible to take a vacation in Barcelona without seeing the sky light up in a myriad of bright, bold colours. New Year’s Eve, La Merce festival, and the Sant Joan festival host three of the biggest fireworks displays on the Barcelona events calendar, but the big question is, where are the best places to view them from in the city?

Here are a few great options to consider:

Barceloneta Beach

There’s no location in Barcelona quite like Barceloneta Beach, which is why many parties and celebrations are held here throughout the year. The beach is one of the best places to watch the city’s fireworks displays, and there is usually a very lively, colourful atmosphere to enjoy, too.

Your Barcelona Villa

If you’re travelling with young children, or if you don’t really like big crowds, then consider watching the fireworks from your villa in Barcelona. During the bigger holidays, you should have great views from your windows or patio, and you can enjoy the show in a relaxed, quiet, and comfortable environment.

Bunkers de Carmel

If you rent a house in Barcelona near the El Carmel neighbourhood, then the most obvious choice for viewing the fireworks if from the famous Carmel bunkers. From the top of the hill you can enjoy an incredible 360-degree view of the city, putting you in a prime location regardless of where the fireworks take place.

Montjuïc

Like the Carmel bunkers, the beauty of Montjuïc is that the hill looms over the city, so you have a fantastic vantage point. An additional benefit of Montjuïc is that the hill tends to be a little less crowded than locations in the city centre, so you should be able to find plenty of space to set up a tripod.
