Congratulations on choosing Barcelona as the place for your proposal!
This vibrant Mediterranean city, with its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, and delicious food is one of the most romantic cities in the world to go down on one knee. Choosing the perfect location in an unfamiliar city can be a challenge, especially when you add the stress of proposing, choosing the ring, and all of the logistics.
We have helped organize and photograph hundreds of proposals in Barcelona and we can’t wait to share with you our secret list of the 10 Best Locations to Propose in Barcelona!
1. Ciutadella Park
This beautiful city park is loved both by locals and tourists, who come here to take a break from the heat, train, do yoga, play guitar and meet friends for picnics. It has an impressive fountain, which is simply stunning and offers a variety of photography backdrops. If your partner loves nature, palm trees, and fountains, Ciutadella Park is a great choice! Check out this gorgeous proposal shot by us at Ciutadella Park!
2. Park Güell
Colorful, luscious, and with stunning vistas over Barcelona. What else can you ask for? This UNESCO World Heritage Site designed by the genius architect Antoní Gaudí attracts thousands of visitors every year. Even though it gets very packed, if you get there early, you might end up with the most magical photos ever. If she likes landmarks, views, and colorful tiles, she is going to love Park Güell. It truly is like a fairytale!
Please note: as of 2022 you need special permission to take professional photos at Park Güell and it comes with an extra cost. Contact us for more details.
3. Bunkers del Carmel
Known as Bunkers del Carmel or Turó de la Rovira, this viewpoint is more known to the locals than tourists. However, as with most of the amazing places in Barcelona, it can get busy during the day. If you want to make it just about the two of you, better get up early! You won’t regret it. The pastel sunrise over Barcelona with you going down on your knee is something she will remember forever.
4. Plaça d'Espanya
A spectacular fountain in front of the Museum of National Art of Catalonia. There are lots of things to do in the area (such as walking around Montjuic Hill or the Spanish Village), so it’s a perfect place to surprise her by proposing after you do the sightseeing!
5. Parc del Laberint d'Horta
Labyrinth Parc (in Catalan called Parc del Laberint d’Horta), also known as Barcelona Maze is straight out of a fairytale. The green labyrinth looks impressive, especially at sunrise and sunset, and makes an absolutely magical backdrop for proposals. Take your girlfriend to the secret maze and pop the Question. She’ll love it, we promise.
6. Montjuïc Hill
There are many locations for a perfectly romantic proposal in Montjuic. If you aim for stunning sunset views, go to Mirador del Alcalde. If she loves cacti, you can propose in the Cactus Garden. If you’re not shy and don’t mind having some audience while you’re asking her to marry you, you can do it in front of Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. The views over the city and Tibidabo mountain are just mesmerizing at sunset.
7. The Gothic Quarter
This beautiful old part of Barcelona is full of secret corners and majestic buildings. You can choose between one of many cozy cobbled streets with typical Barcelona architecture or more popular spots, such as Barcelona Cathedral or Pont del Bisbe. If your partner likes old European towns, this is your place to propose!
8. The beach
You cannot skip going to the beach when you’re in Barcelona! It offers dazzling views of the iconic W Hotel, Montjuic, and the Mapfre Towers. All of them are part of the famous Barcelona skyline. If she is a beach type of girl, take her there!
9. Sagrada Familia
The iconic Gaudi building, which is still under construction, is a true masterpiece. Its enormous beauty captures the hearts of visitors from all over the world, and for a good reason. It’s a great place to propose if your girlfriend loves architecture and famous buildings.
10. Rooftop of a hotel
Does your partner love fancy cocktails and sunsets with spectacular views? Propose on one of the romantic hotel rooftops in Barcelona! One of the best rooftops includes the Majestic Hotel, Barcelo Raval, or Piano Hotel Silken Diagonal. The big plus is the fact that you can have an amazing dinner with a perfect view, right after you get engaged!
