Barcelona Montjuic Hill

Planning to explore the best of Barcelona? One of Barcelona’s most exciting places to visit is Montjuic Hill, which became a popular area when Barcelona hosted the Olympics in 1992. Montjuic is where some of the city’s top attractions can be found. Don’t forget to visit this unique area when you’re in town!

Explore Montjuic Hill in Barcelona

Let’s start with some practical information. How to get to Montjuic? One way is to climb the mountain in a cable car, and enjoy the fantastic panoramic views of the city. Admission to the Castle on the Montjuic Hill is free so go ahead and explore! But leave some time for a visit at the nearby National Art Museum of Cataluña. Your next stop could be Poble Espanyol, an open air architectural museum and one of the biggest attractions in Barcelona. Poble Espanyol offers great activities like flamenco or play treasure hunt with the whole family. We highly recommend a visit!

Passionate about art? Then the Miro museum is a must-visit place for you. Do you like sports? Then you’ll probably enjoy the Olympic stadium. And if you are interested in architecture and music, then head to the Palau Sant Jordi, which is the local concert hall of the city.

Climbing down from Montjuic, don’t forget to visit Plaza Espagna where you will find a fabulous great shopping center with inspiring views of the city. Our final tip is to wait until the night falls down on Montjuic, and then enjoy one of the city’s most spectacular free shows – the Magic Fountain show – a wonderful combination of lights, music and colours! The fountain was constructed for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition, but still manages to entertain lots of people now.
