Abundant sunshine, enchanting architecture, fun expats, loving locals make for some excellent rooftop terraces in Barcelona.
Along with spectacular views these terraces often feature live music, dining and events.

Situated on one of the most luxurious streets in Spain, Passeig de Gràcia, La Dolce Vitae based at the Majestic Hotel offers striking 360-degree views of the Barcelona skyline.

Visit Up at Pulitzer Hotel
