What to Expect
This itinerary will allow you to enjoy the most emblematic sights the city has to offer. First, head to the sea, where you will be able to admire the intense changes the city underwent with the organization of the Olympic Games in 1992.
Continue the visit driving up Montjuïc, where you will enjoy a cable card ride with precious views of the city. The bus will pick you up at the last station and you will continue your Montjuïc visit passing by the sports facilities built for the 1992 Olympic Games, until reaching the Spanish Village.
Visit this charming place where you can admire a collection of traditional buildings from all over Spain, and a demonstration of a selection of the handcrafts made in this country. 
After the visit to the Spanish village, arrive at the Plaza de Catalunya, the starting point of the guided walking tour of the old city center. Your tour finishes at the Plaza de Catalunya, in front of the Hard Rock Café, in the city center at a 10 minutes walking distance from our office. 

Spend an hour relaxing before you are transported via bus to nearby Montserrat. The drive takes you through picturesque villages, eventually taking you to the breathtaking setting of the mountain of Montserrat, which rises to an impressive 4,051 feet (1,235 meters).
