Carretera de les Aigües (Sector Horta-Guinardó)

Ctra Aigües, 361

The Les Aigües road is located in the Collserola range and runs along the hillside overlooking the city. It is one of the green areas most visited by residents of Barcelona, with some 2,000 users a day, thanks to its proximity to the metropolis and the fact that it is easy to get to. It originated in the former route of a water distribution conduit, which explains its horizontal layout and name.

Athletes and walkers

Runners often use the Les Aigües road for training along, being an ideal location due to its very flat terrain. But there are also plenty of cyclists and walkers who also enjoy the magnificent views over the city of Barcelona. It is a popular green area, far from the bustle and pollution.

An extension programme

The project to extend the Les Aigües road is currently awaiting approval. It affects the stretch that passes by the Bacallà Fountain and will enable uninterrupted connection of the town of Esplugues de Llobregat with Torre Baró. A steel footbridge, four and a half metres wide and 157 metres long, will span the Carretera d’Arrabassada. The project also includes improvements to 800 metres of the area prior to the footbridge, to adjust the width to that of the rest of the promenade. The aim is to ensure that walkers and cyclists can move about freely in both directions.
