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.
