Exploring Montjuïc


With unhurried visits to the Miró Foundation and any or all of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya collections in the Palau Nacional, this is a four- to five-hour excursion, if not a full day. Have lunch afterward in the Poble Espanyol, just up from Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion or in the cafeteria-restaurant at the Fundació Miró.

Getting Here

The most dramatic approach to Montjuïc is the cross-harbor cable car (Transbordador Aeri) from Barceloneta or from the mid-station in the port. You can also take a taxi or Bus No. 61 (or walk) from Plaça d’Espanya; yet another option is the funicular from the Paral·lel (Paral·lel metro stop, L3). The Telefèric de Montjuïc from the funicular stop to the Castell de Montjuïc is the final leg to the top.
