Can Borni Gardens in Collserola

Barcelona is often touted as a popular cosmopolitan city but it also has its fair share of quiet sanctuaries. Areas that, while popular among locals and tourists, remain peaceful and quieter than the city proper. A great example are the Can Borni gardens up on Collserola. Collserola is a mountainous area in Barcelona that has a lot of great biking areas, so this place will pop up again later on this list. But in this particular area, the Can Borni area provides a serene escape from the normal hustle and bustle of the Catalan city. It's a great spot for a romantic date too!

Carretera de les Aigües

 

Another area in Collserola you can go to on your bike is Carretera de les Aigües. This place is one of the more private and even more rural parts of the mountainous region, making it a perfect spot for adventurers looking to go slightly beyond the populous areas in Barcelona. Do take note that it's quite a steep climb here, so it's not for the faint of heart. The place is more suitable for experienced cyclists, as it will take a lot of energy and power to even get to the popular points in this area. On the bright side, going up here is one of the more unique things to do in this city!

Montjuïc

 

The Montjuic mountain is a great place to bike through for many reasons. One of them is that several of the areas here were used during the 1992 Summer Olympics, the year Barcelona hosted the historic event. Remnants of those times are still seen via the markers, signs, and more. There's also the famous Montjuic castle, a fortress fit to star in a period fantasy film. Its gothic architecture may seem familiar and similar to the buildings in the city proper, but against the backdrop of the stunning mountainous region, it makes for an even more spectacular monument.
