The 360º Terrace that sits atop the trendy Barceló Raval Hotel is a great spot to see far and wide — and close up, if you like. Free-standing lookout binoculars surrounding the circular patio allow you to zoom in on city streets and monuments alike, giving you endless views. There's a small pool for hotel guests, but the terrace is open to the public from 6pm to midnight during the week, and until 1am at weekends. Watch the sun set from one of the many tables and benches lining the loop — it's narrow but still not cramped early in the evening.
