If you have clear skies, the view of Barcelona from this vantage point is fantastic. It’s probably the main reason why people visit this spot. You can see the entire city, the sea and the mountains, which form the natural city limits. It’s breathtaking.
So while you’re up here, you might as well take a look at the Sagrat Cor church. The crypt with the lower entrance area and the church itself are free to enter. The crypt is lavishly decorated – with wonderful lamps, stained-glass windows and sculptures. You could call it “kitschy”, but it has a general air of beauty about it. The main church on the other hand, located above the crypt, is kept simple, but the ceiling is surprisingly high and gives you an interesting and very unique impression of the place.
And then you can take the elevator up to the Jesus sculpture. It hovers above everything else, always looking at Barcelona from above. The elevator costs 3,50 Euro, though, and you still have to walk at least a couple of stairs at the end. But once you get there, you can basically almost touch the feet of Jesus Christ.
If you arrive as a family with children, the amusement park might be worth a look for you. The Ferris wheel, the flying swing, the little red airplane, and many others might be a children’s delight of the day.
And honestly, while you’re up there, take the nine-minute walk over to the Torre Collserola. The TV tower is accessible from there, too!
