Sightscapes. A Visual approach to 3 Landscape Architecture Projects

Come join us in a mountain hike within the mediterranean forest of Collserola, to experience the best views of Barcelona and its green infrastructure.

  1. Font del Racó Park
  2. Observing the skyline
  3. Can Borni Old Nursery

We will meet at the L7 terminus station Av. Tibidabo to walk to the Funicular of Barcelona, where we will visit el Parc de la Font del Racó, designed by Rubió i Tudurí, one of the most important landscape architects in Spain. After this visit, we will take the cable car up to Tibidabo, the highest peak of Collserola.

Once up there, we will explain you the most important green areas in the city and the coast. After, we will walk alongside Carretera de les Aigües, a path that allows you to walk above Barcelona. We will visit Jardins de Can Borni, a peaceful garden also designed by Rubió i Tudurí.
In this visit we will get to know and understand the mountain range of Collserola and the structure of Barcelona. It requires comfortable clothing and shoes, since the estimated walking time in total is of approximately 1 hour. Totally worth it to get the best views of the city!
