Montjuic is a beautiful montain in Barcelona which deserve a visit.This is an easy and interesting walk. Starting at Plaza De España, our first stop I is “Centro Comercial Las Arenas” , and old bullfighting court, which fortunately is now forbidden in Cataluña, sadly bullfighting is still happening in the rest of the country, but we are fighting to end it. I highly recommend to go to the giant roof, and have breakfast with a gorgeous view, go all around and take some pictures, look for Sagrada Familia, Torre Agbar, Torres Mapfre… let´s play!!!
Afterward, right in front of you, you will see the beautiful Paseo De María Cristina, walk till the end and start climbing to the top!! Do not panic!! There are escalators to the very top. Now you have reached the magnificent MNAC (Museo nacional de arte de Cataluña), if you are an Art & History Lover, take a few hours to visit it , they have great exhibitions and the building itself it makes worth it to get in.
From here, free time! take as much as you want, the mountain is huge and there are many places to see;
