Carretera de les Aigües

The Carretera de les Aigües is the perfect place for a bike ride or a walk while you enjoy views of Barcelona. Within easy access of the city, the trail is a great favourite with locals and also provides a magnificent viewing point from the Collserola ridge.

The Carretera de les Aigües is so named because of the water pipes that once ran along this path, and retains its horizontal layout. It is almost 10 kilometres long and, at its highest point, stands 450 metres above sea level. It is one of the locals' most popular cycling and walking trails. From Sant Pere Màrtir to the Carretera de la Rabassada, the viewing point on the side of Collserola that overlooks Barcelona is perfect. This simple, even path offers sweeping, matchless views of the city.

A privileged balcony overlooking the city which is easily accessible by public or private transport and set against the backdrop of the Collserola Natural Park.
