Besides, castles usually have wonderful views. If you want a proposal story worthy of a fairy tale or medieval history, this is the place for your proposal in Barcelona.

7. Top best places to propose in Barcelona: Original venues

If you’re thinking about where to propose to your partner, but you’re sure you want to make a difference, in Barcelona you can consider different original places to make it a fun and memorable moment. Read on!

Tibidabo Amusement Park

Even the most serious person holds a child inside, and who doesn’t like amusement parks? Located in the Collserola mountain range that borders Barcelona to the west, and guarded by the religious Temple of Tibidabo, the Tibidabo Amusement Park opened its doors in 1910 and includes the famous Atalaya, which allows you to have a hand-in-hand proposal with the best panoramic views of the city, the sea and the natural surroundings of the Collserola mountain range from 550 m above sea level.

Teleférico cable cars in Barcelona

If you want to leave your partner open-mouthed with a proposal in Barcelona in the sky, the cable car is an excellent and affordable option. In Barcelona we are privileged to have two cable car routes:

  • Montjuic cable car: Park – Castle – Viewpoint.
  • Port Cable Car: Miramar – Jaime I Tower – San Sebastian Tower

It is open every day from morning to sunset, depending on the season and time of day.

8. Top best places for a wedding proposal in Barcelona: Gardens

A bucolic landscape for a wedding proposal is also could be a garden full of gigantic trees. It usually has elements such as natural flowers, benches, alleyways, etc. How about filling it with lights as you walk through to ask the big question? We love this idea! That’s why, below, we’ll dictate our favourite parks in the city.

Vivero de Can Borni Gardens

It is situated just below the Tibidabo Amusement Park, these gardens are little frequented by locals and arguably virtually unknown to tourists, so it a very peaceful place surrounded by nature. Located in the Serra de Collserola natural park, the Vivero de Can Borni is an ideal place to kneel among expanses of gardens, natural terraces and fountains.

Collserola Park

The Collserola Park, with more than 8,000 hectares, is a natural heritage of incalculable value. Its importance lies in its proximity to the urban environment. It is a lung, a backbone of biodiversity and the connector of two apparently opposing systems: nature and the city. Almost all the Mediterranean fauna is represented by the coexistence of the forest with other spaces such as crops and dry meadows.

Mossen Costa y Llobera Gardens

Another of our favourite Barcelona gardens is the Mossen Costa y Llobera Garden, located on Mount Montjuïc overlooking the sea and cruise ships. It’s a sparsely populated garden as it’s located away from the tourist areas, making it ideal for a proposal. It also has interesting vegetation, especially a cactus garden. And it’s all just a few metres away from the cable car from the port. It’s also a great place for a photo shoot after your engagement.

9. Top best places to propose in Barcelona: On the sea

If water is your passion, but you’re not convinced by a simple boat, you can go one step further and get together with your partner on board of a ship or yacht, while you enjoy excellent music and a glass of wine sailing the waters of Barcelona. It’s a great time to ask the question! You can also count on additional services such as live music to make your proposal a complete experience.

Private yacht

There’ s nothing better than a modern yacht sailing the waters of Barcelona to ask the big question. Can you imagine a marriage proposal in Barcelona on board a yacht with dinner and a night in the yacht’s cabin? We know that your partner will be delighted and will never forget what it was like to propose on the high seas. You and your partner, the sea, good food and drinks. What could be better?

Who can resist asking for marriage in this way?

10. Top best places to propose in Barcelona: Libraries
