The Carretera de les Aigües is the perfect place for a walk or a bike ride while you enjoy views of Barcelona. This privileged balcony overlooking the whole city is easily accessible by train (S1 or S2 line and Peu del Funicular) from Plaza Catalunya, Provença, Gracia or Sant Gervasi station in Barcelona.
The Carretera de les Aigües is so named because of the water pipes that once ran along this path, and retains its horizontal layout and set against the backdrop of the Collserola Natural Park. It is almost 10 kilometers long and, at its highest point, stands 450 meters above sea level. It is one of the locals’ most popular cycling and walking trails.
Check it out and get inspired by the beautiful nature that Barcelona offers just 15 minutes by train from the center.
