Parc de Montjuic, Barcelona

(8,500+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Get some fresh air and escape the bustle of the big city with a visit to Parc de Montjuic, a sprawling green area featuring well-maintained gardens, cultural attractions, and sports venues. Covering the slopes of a hill that overlooks the port of Barcelona, the park hosted its first events during the 1929 World’s Fair. Today, the area is home to several museums, housed inside some of the city’s finest examples of modern architecture. The top of the hill, which is 185 m (607 ft) high, was the site of several military fortifications, and a castle dated to about 1640 still stands there today. Stop by to photograph the sprawling city and relax with a leisurely stroll, or enjoy fine art and exquisite architecture at one of the museums. Put Parc de Montjuic into our Barcelona trip itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Barcelona.
