Perhaps the most delightful of our six days in Barcelona was a full day spent on Montjuic which has great museums, lovely gardens and fantastic views, all free of the crowds and congestion of downtown. We took the Metro to Plaza de Espania which puts you at the bottom of the impressive entrance, an avenue full of fountains and stairways. Dont worry about the stairs, as there are escalators for every level. We stopped by the Mies van der Rohe pavilion on the way up, then the not-to-be-missed National Art Museum at the top. You can have a light lunch on the patio there looking out over the city. We walked over to the charming Miro museum, which also has a nice lunch. Our Articket, purchased to avoid the long line at Picasso, gave us entry to both museums without standing in line. We did not make it up to the castle, but enjoyed walking by gardens and the Olympic site. The air is fresh and it was a very relaxed day. We returned on the 55 bus which goes from both the Olympic site and Miro back to the central Plaza Catalunya.

We had a great day exploring Montjuic - we took the cable car from the port and then walked to the castle. However, when we arrived, we were astounded to find out you could only buy a drink if you paid to enter the castle. We were there on a very hot day and had we realised this was the case, would have bought water at the cafe next to the cable car station.

It's well worth the trip - and a lovely walk but down - but you'll struggle if you don't take any water with you!

Starting at the Place de Espania, discovering the Montjuïc area is a real treat. Great sights, nice parks, Olympic monuments and stadiums in area with a good atmoshpere without beggars, salesdudes (sunglasses, tourist crap, water) and too many tourists. If the city gets too much, this is the right place to get some rest again still see nice things.

We took the funicular to go up and visit the Mintjuic castle. The park is really great and well kept. I suggest going down walking and there is a street which also brings you to the Olympic Stadium and than to the Art Musueum and Placa Espana.

The funicular service was closed and we decided to walk up to the castle. It was tiring but fun. There are excellent views from the top of the castle. Overall, a lovely experience.
