A very lovely and beautiful park although very crowded when we visited in July 2014. As others have said you need your walking legs as it is a climb from the bottom to just get to the park. Once in the park there are parts of the park where it costs to go in with set times for entry. We... More

We spent half day, just walking around. Had the chance to see all the beautiful gardens, city from the overviews and to visit Miro Museum. Worth going on the funicular.

As we were staying close to the park we were there several times. It's a good place to escape the city but you need good legs as it's all part of a large hill. We did try the funicular car up which cost €5 for one way. It gives a good view of the city, but the best view is... More

This is a lovely park to wander through if you've got your walking legs on. Alternatively, you can get the cable car (Funicular de Montjuïc) to the Castell at the top of the parc and wander back through. It's peacful and very child friendly - not that this should put the romantics off.

Easy way to go there is to take metro to Paral lel station and enter to Funicular there. At the end stop of Funicular you can take Telefonico Cable Car to go to Castle Montjuic or star walking area. There is a lot of to see. Olympic museum, and there you can compare you feet to famous Olympic athletics feet.... More

This area hosts several attractions such as former Olympic venues, a couple different muséums, the fountain (known for its lightshow), and the botanical gardens. There is a "skilift" that will take you on up and offers nice views. Although I never took it, I do believe there is a tourist bus line that serves the park as well. I'd suggest... More

We didn't pay to go into the castle but went to the cafe in the park instead. The had a good selection of herbal teas and served a lovely croissant. The view was great.

We went up to Montjuïc in the cable car. Nice ride! Great views from the Castell and the Parc over the city and over the Mediterranean Sea. Nice to walk around and look down on Barcelona. You can even see the Segrada Familia. There is a little place where you can get something to eat and drink and there is... More

Such a beautiful place! We arrived using the funicular (which counts as part of the metro ticket if you stop at parallel, so u don't have to pay extra). We walked round and it was very pleasant, both weather wise and scenery wise. The fountains are spectacular...definitely a must see!

We accessed the castle by using the Montjuïc cable car, a gondola lift that has its upper station near the castle entrance. This also proved to be an enjoyable experience. Barcelona's Montjuïc mountain is a broad shallow hill with a relatively flat top overlooking the harbour. The Fort (Castell) and Parc is perched on top of this hilltop and provides... More
