Top sights in Barcelona
Barcelona's Montjuic is the city's highest mountain. Its park is also a microcosm of the city's culture - the beautiful nature, fascinating museums and well-known art.
What better way to get a view over the slopes of Barcelona than from the air? The cable cars departing from Montjuic have been open since 1970 and will let you see the city in a whole new light.
Taking a bike tour around Barcelona is a healthy, ecological, and sociable way to explore the city! Parc de Montjuic is one of the stops - pedal up and downhill for an exhilarating experience.
Peeking out of the hill, this place provides a complete introduction to the artwork and life of Joan Miro, the legendary Barcelonian painter.
More treats for art fans: this is an aggregate of the different styles of art from the Catalonia region, which maintains its own unique identity from the rest of Spain. Check out the permanent Romanesque exhibition.
In 1992, Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games right here in Parc de Montjuic. Italian architect Vittorio Grigotti designed the stadium's unique olympic tower.
Please note that in the Montjuic cable car seating is limited to eight people per car.
Barcelona's status as capital of Catalonia means that the official language is Catalan. If you already know some Spanish or French, it'll be easy to learn a few Catalan words - locals will be very happy to hear you try!
It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!
If you think you'll be sampling a lot of museums in Barcelona, why not look into a ticket that will give you discounted entry to a few museums or skip-the-line privileges?

What people are saying about Parc de Montjuic
We had a great experience with Kurt our driver for the day. Although the weather wasn`t kind to us, we were picked up at our hotel & sat back & let Kurt show us Barcelona. Kurt was very knowledgeable & had a great insight into the history & surrounds to show us & tell us. He arranged our quick entrance into Sagrada Familia all while we enjoyed lunch at a great paella & tapas restaurant he had booked ahead for us at an indoor table because of the rainy day, amongst some many great other popular tourist spots. Would happily recommend Kurt & In Out Barcelona Tours if your looking for a great tour, with ease of booking & clear communications upon booking & updated information as to who our driver was going to be.
Would certainly recommend a visit to Montjuïc. Lovely ride to the top and then fantastic views from the castle. The grounds are beautiful and very well looked after. Booking on line was easy but there is no separate entrance for online bookings. The castle is very interesting and you can spend as long as you like just wandering around. Plenty of shade, except on top of the castle, and a cafe inside the castle and a place to buy drinks and ice creams in the grounds outside. A very good day.
Our guide was very helpful, he managed to get my bike changed for me while we were on the boat trip as the one I had was a little bit too big for me. He was very knowledgeable about the different places we went to and helped us put our bikes on the cablecar. He stopped regular so everyone could stay together there was no pressure to go fast and the bikes were so easy to ride even up hill.
We thoroughly enjoyed this complete tour of the city and the Sagrada Familia. It was such a great way to see the city and loved the views from Montjuic! Thanks again for a fantastic memory!
Easy on-line purchase, and then just wave your phone at the barrier. You could walk up to the top of the hill, but the views from the cable car are better and your legs will thank you.
