Montjuïc Mountain Tours

star-4.5
90 Reviews
Montjuïc Mountain
Montjuïc Mountain (from Catalan, meaning mountain of the Jews) is located southwest of Barcelona’s old city, and gets its name from a Jewish cemetery flowing down its slopes. After hosting both the World Exhibition in 1929 and the Olympics in 1992, the neighborhood is home to numerous attractions, including a castle, Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, the Miró Museum (Fundació Miró), and the Magic Fountain.
 
The Basics
As home to some of Barcelona’s best museums and attractions, Montjuïc features on many sightseeing tours of the city, including the double-decker hop-on hop-off bus (with stops at Plaça d’Espanya, the Miró Museum, cable car station, and Olympic stadium). Once in the area, it’s easy to explore the attractions that most interest you on foot, or simply soak in the views from Montjuïc Park.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Montjuïc ranks among Barcelona’s best spots for panoramic views.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to do a fair bit of walking.
  • Don’t forget to bring sun protection for exploring Montjuïc’s parks and outdoor areas.
  • The Montjuïc cable car and funicular are both wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get There
Getting to Montjuïc is half of the fun. A funicular railway takes passengers up to the top of the hill and offers spectacular views along the way. There’s also a cable car connecting Montjuïc to the main beach area, and several walking paths leading up from the streets of Poble Sec.
 
When to Get There
The best views from the top of Montjuïc come around sunset, when the city is painted in shades of pink and orange. You could easily spend an entire day in the neighborhood (try to hit the museums first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds), finishing off with the sunset and Magic Fountain show.
 
Travel Through Spain at Poble Espanyol
Situated on the hillside of Montjuïc, the Spanish village (Poble Espanyol) is Spain in miniature. This open-air museum was built for the World Exhibition to show off the range of Spanish architecture through some 115 different buildings, from a Galician townhouse to a Jerez sherry cellar. Visit to get an overview of Spain’s cultural and architectural diversity, especially if you have limited time in other parts of the country.
