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.
We booked WeBarcelona for an EBike tour of Barcelone through Get Your Guide. It was an easy booking tool, it was a great company they connected us with and best of all...the tour was awesome. We saw most of Barcelona in one day since we were on a cruise and only had a limited amount of hours. We didn't get to go into the Sagrada Familia facility, but they would have coordinated that tour for us as well, we just didn't have time. The tour guide was super knowledgeable and very accomodating to everyone on the tour. It was a great experience. I highly recommend it, even if you are there for several days.
Barca is a beautiful city which you experience best by bike or by foot and bus. We did booth! The tour on bike was truly fantastic and one of the best things we did on our weekend in the city. You get a great overall grasp of the city in short time when biking around and the views from Montjuic is absolutely amazing. Our guide had all the knowledge and shared it in a fun and interesting way. He also gave a lot of recommendations for fun and food in the city. We absolutely recommend this trip!
A bit of a queue but it goes down quickly enough. Disappointed that a whole group 15 plus Russians pushed in front of us and no body said anything! However I was glad they were out of the way! Very rude! But the cable car was well worth it for the views! I would recommend you get on at mirador go down the rack then all the back up to the castle ... the queue are shorter there!
We’ve never got to see the cemetery because one of the roads was closed, so that was disappointing. And I actually thought you were going to start in the gothic/old part of town but ended up just doing Mujuic. Which was fine but not what I planned on. I actually thought you were going to start in the gothic/old part of town, which is what I read and why I booked this tour.
