A little bit apart from the city center’s buzz, El Carmel is a quiet and sloppy neighbourhood on the upper west side of the city. On top the hill there are some abandoned “bunkers” from the Spanish civil war, built by the republicans in 1937 in order to defend Barcelona from the fascist forces.
This place, even it it not specially prepared for tourists has become very popular among the young (and mostly international) people as the place to enjoy the best views of Barcelona when the sun goes down.
The area is composed of the unused and derruidos old buildings where people sits and just enjoys the view. Lately, a small museum has been opened in one of the bunkers where the development of Barcelona is explained during the years of the war, another interesting reason to visit the place.
