Just 15 minutes from the city center, lies Barcelona nature’s best kept secret. Come and discover it with us. 360runningbarcelona gives you the opportunity to know the Collserola Natural Park trail in a path suited to your level.
Collserola borders Barcelona and eight other municipalities and covers an area of over 10,000 hectares. It is a real green lung of the metropolitan area of Barcelona and is considered one of the largest urban parks in Europe. Since 2010 is a Natural Park recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya. His endless roads allow to discover many Masías (typical farmhouses), fountains, chapels, as well as an interesting and rich natural and cultural heritage.
The route passes through the most emblematic places of the Collserola mountain range, such as the Collserola Tower, designed by architect Norman Foster for the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992, or the Tibidabo Amusement Park. In both places we will enjoy spectacular views of the city. When we get the Park, we are entering a fascinating trailrunning route through the mountain.
For those who prefer a quieter trailrunning tour, we recommend a route round to the famous Carretera de ls Aigües, a real balcony overlooking the city.
The Collserola is a massif, an area with plenty of walks through the woods, where, for a while, you can leave behind the city asphalt, have a change of air, and relax. You can find all the possibilities on the Collserola Park website.
The Tibidabo Amusement Park is an ideal place for children and adults to spend hours enjoying themselves on the rides, often with new installations, as well as enjoying the views over the city of Barcelona. Children love it!
Entry only to the Tibidabo Camí del Cel gardens is free, without any rides or attractions.
If you decide to go to the amusement park, there is the puppet theatre and the Museum of the Automatons, with its collection principally from the early 20th century. More information is available on the Amusement Park website. By Barcelona Turisme.
