Montjuic Tour

Montjuïc Tour & Fundació Miró with José a licensed guide in English.

3h 6 max. English On foot

The Montjüic hill is one of the “lungs of the city”. It’s packed with parks, gardens, monuments, viewpoints, museums and sports facilities. The attractions are dispersed over a large area and seeing it all requires plenty of time. Using a tour guide will allow you to better organise your visit while learning about the park and castle. Also, at the top of the hill you’ll find the most complete art collection of the multi-talented artist from Barcelona, Joan Miró.


Why choose this route?

Plaça d’Espanya, located on the edge of Montjüic, is home to a series of splendid fountains. Among those is the so-called Font Màgica (Magic Fountain), which often features choreographed lighting and music on special occasions.

Several points on this relaxing tour boast gorgeous views of the city and the rest of the park and its gardens.

The route passes through some emblematic parts of Barcelona, El Museu Nacional d´Art, El Palau ant Jordi and the Olympic Stadium.

The Fundació Miró is the third-most visited museum in Barcelona and fourth-most visited in Catalonia. This remarkable museum features the most complete collection of Miró’s work and that of other contemporary artists.

Description of the guided tour

Montjüic is one of the lungs of the city, touting numerous parks, gardens, museums and sporting facilities.

It’s worth taking a peaceful, open-air stroll through the hill, away from the busy city centre. Taking the tour with an accredited guide is crucial for managing our time efficiently because the park is large and there’s lots to see.

We’ll be able to see the many particularities of Montjüic and one of Catalonia’s most visited museums: the Fundació Miró.

This tour is ideal for families with children because they can run and play freely. Children also enjoy the colourful work and charm of the multi-talented artist Joan Miró—in Catalonia, students begin studying him at an early age.

Adults can also be immersed in Miró’s world, where his visual, resounding work is filled with colour, light and is a tribute to the lands of the Mediterranean.

Throughout the journey we’ll talk about the evolution of the area, where the Olympic Games played a crucial role, its emblematic buildings and the local customs and origins.

We’ll pass Plaça d’Espanya with its formidable Venetian Towers that were constructed on the occasion of the 1929 Universal Exposition; the Magic Fountain, where many music and shows are held; the Olympic Stadium; the Sant Jordi Palace, designed by the famous Japanese architect Arata Isokazi.

Though it’s not included in the itinerary, visitors can finish off in the Montjüic Castle, an old fortification from the 17th century that was turned into a museum. Here, you can enjoy beautiful views of the park and the city.
