It used to be a flak bunker during the Civil War, but now it’s a picnic venue and a great viewpoint.
It takes more than 30 minutes to walk from the metro guinardo of the yellow line, a path that includes going up endless stairs and walking up the hill. But once you reach the top you realize it’s worth the effort. Also, you can take bus 24 in front of the Corte Ingles store in Plaça Catalunya and get off in the stop Carretera del Carmel-Mühlberg and walk up Carrer de Mühlberg until you see a stairway path on your left. That way is nearly 45 minutes by bus and 15 minutes walking up.
Once up there the view will take your breath away, if there is some left after all the climbing. Sometimes you can find people playing guitar and singing, or you can bring your own portable speakers and mp3 player and have a party with the best view ever!
In any case, whether you’re going for a picnic, a party, sightseeing or sunbathing, bring enough water for the climbing and a sunblock cream, if at daytime.
Be aware, despite the fact it’s not really a slaughterhouse, scaffold or a gallows, after the sun is gone the place might be a stage for unscrupulous, callous, unseemly shows at odds with conventional standards.
