Montjuic

An old fort, a national art museum and miles of walking trails are features of this park overlooking the harbor.

Montjuïc is a hill overlooking Barcelona’s port that features green space, museums and sports facilities. The park offers views across the city and harbor. Catch a cable car to a fort at the top of the hill or rent a bike and make the most of the park’s paved paths.

Montjuïc is about 600 feet (180 meters) high. The 16th-century Montjuïc Castle sits at the top. Walk around the fortress walls for panoramic views. Watch films at an open-air cinema in summer.

A number of the park’s features were built for the 1929 World’s Fair, including the Palau Nacional (National Palace). Today the neo-Baroque building houses the National Art Museum of Catalonia. Explore Renaissance, Gothic, Roman and Baroque art, or modernist works from the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Magic Fountain sits in front of the Palau Nacional. The fountain shoots out hundreds of gallons (thousands of liters) of water a minute. In the evening it’s lit up with a music and light display every half hour. 

Mies van der Rohe’s German Pavilion lies next to the fountain. The modern house was built for the World’s Fair and is known worldwide as an architectural landmark.
Visit Poble Espanyol, a remake of a Spanish village. It has craft shops and traditional restaurants.

Tour sites from the 1992 Olympics, including the stadium, sports palace and a striking white communications tower built by a renowned Spanish architect.
Stroll through gardens and rest on benches overlooking the city. 

The park is always open. Opening hours for individual attractions vary, so check online before visiting. Admission to the park is free but some attractions charge a fee.
Montjuïc can be accessed via the metro and bus. Take the cable car from Parallel metro station to the top of the hill. It runs from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
