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, which includes going up 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 Corte Ingles of Plaça Catalunya and get off in Ctra 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.
Sometimes you can even 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 sun block.
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.
