Montjuic is a hill in Barcelona where several landmarks now live. A part of us wasn’t sure if we were actually going to visit because we had to go up a cable car to get to the top (fear of heights, anyone?), but you know, you only live once right?
If you’ve been following along for a while, you know I love a good cityscape and heading up to Montjuic is probably the best and easiest way to get a great view of the city. To get there, you’ll first take a funicular train which is basically a tram that takes you uphill, then from that first hill, you’ll take a cable car to the top. This is where we got to see Castell de Montjuic.
There’s actually a lot of other things to do in Montjuic, but we opted to just check out the castle area during this trip to free up the day as we wanted to take our final day easy. If you happen to have a lot of time, there is an amazing fountain here that illuminates at night, the Olympic stadium, and several amazing museums. There’s also restaurants on the hill with views of the city, ideal for sipping on Barcelona’s drink of choice – vermouth.
