    1

    Basilica de la Sagrada Familia

    To say the least, Gaudi’s masterpiece is photogenic. The Sagrada Familia offers stunning photo opportunities both inside and outside. A good spot to snap the entire basilica is from Plaza de Gaudí, and if you want to admire the cathedral for a longer time, then choose to stay in a hotel closest to La Sagrada Familia.

    Park Güell

    Another Gaudi’s work of art, Park Güell features plenty of great spots to take memorable photos. The most popular sites include the Dragon Stairway, Sala Hipòstila rooftops and Mirador Virolai (aka Mirador Joan Sales) which offers a stunning view of Barcelona.

    Barcelona Cathedral

    Obviously, the best spot to photograph this stunning Gothic cathedral is from its front square. You also can take interesting shots from Carrer del Dr. Joaquim Pou. This narrow, paved street allows for creative photos of the cathedral.

    Palau de la Musica Catalana

    Featuring golden arcades, stained windows, and rich ornaments, the concert hall of Palau de la Musica Catalana is a mesmeric place to photograph. The façade of the building is also beautiful, but it’s difficult to find a good angle due to the narrowness of the street.

    Camp Nou

    In itself, Camp Nou is not a very photogenic place, but when you have the opportunity to attend a match of the mighty Barça, surrounded by tens of thousands of fans cheering for their favourite team, you certainly want to capture that moment. During match season, the hotels in the surrounding areas of Camp Nou get booked up pretty quickly, so make sure to reserve yours in advance!

    Bunkers del Carmel

    The Bunkers del Carmel are blockhouses built during the Spanish Civil War. Their position at the top of a hill in the north of Barcelona makes them the best viewpoint in the city. Here, you have the possibility to photograph an outstanding 360-degree panorama of Barcelona.

    Playa de la Barceloneta

    Located just north of the ferry terminal, Playa de la Barceloneta is a glamorous beach that offers plenty of great photo opportunities. One of the favourite angles to take a photo at Playa de la Barceloneta frames the stylish Hotel W Barcelona in the background.

    Magic Fountain of Montjuic

    The Magic Fountain of Montjuic is one of the most eye-catching spots in Barcelona. Coloured lights, water effects and music make this early 20th-century fountain really magic. The best time to snap it is right after sunset, when the sky turns dark blue.

    Casa Battlò

    Casa Battlò is another Gaudi’s attractive creations that you should not miss in Barcelona. The unconventional design of the façade of this 7-storey house makes it one of the most photographed landmarks in the city. Choose a hotel situated along Passeig de Gracia to have Casa Battlò, as well as other top attractions, within walking distance.

    Ciutadella Park

    Ciutadella Park is the perfect place to take a breath of fresh air in the congested city of Barcelona. While you’re here, take the opportunity offered by the Cascada Monumental in the northeastern corner of the park to take some great snaps. Another interesting spot is by the Arc de Triomf, situated 300 metres northwest outside the park.

    Carrer del Bisbe

    Carrer del Bisbe (Bishop’s Street) is an iconic narrow lane located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. It’s like a 4-metre-wide corridor stuck between tall, austere buildings. It’s famed for the Gothic bridge that crosses the street, 5 metres above the pavement. Go there early morning or late at night to avoid the crowds and take great photos.

    Street performers of Las Ramblas

    Las Ramblas is not only the most popular boulevard for dining and shopping in Barcelona. It’s also the stage of many clowns, human statues, acrobats, dancers and mimes who come here to perform daily in front of a massive audience. You'll be able to capture some surprising photos.

    Tapas and wine in a bodega

    Head to a bodega to feast on tapas and wine. These typical Spanish wine bars/shops often have a vintage look which offer great photo opportunities. From the colourful assortments of tapas to the bygone décor of the venues, you should bring back a few interesting shots.
