The garden is lovely and the views are great. Not as impressive as on the other side of the city, but still fabulous. Street sellers are there trying to make a living but watch out evenings when it’s less safe apparently

These gardens are located in the Monjuic area. It was a photo stop while on tour. Great views over the city and harbour area. nice water feature. Frankly, if our bus had not stopped here, we would not know it existed.

Went to Montjuic gardens today and was approached by 2 young women “collecting money for deaf children”. We gave them a few euros and they asked us to sign their petition. They then asked for ID. I said no, my husband got his wallet out...More

Visited this area early one morning before any crowds had built up. The places selling snacks and drinks were just opening up. It is a lovely place to wander around with many fine views of the docks and across the city. You can visit using...More

Take a walk tour and go up to the hill, where you have excellent panorama view over city and harbor. It's free of charge.

Great views from this mountain of the city and to the beach. We arrived there by bus, but guess there are other ways of getting there. You can see a lot of Barcelona from here. Worth a visit to take another aspect of the city.

The views of the port and the city are spectacular. There are also nice, large fountains, and the architects also decorated the pavement. There are some street vendors catering to tourists (expensive), along with a small snack shop /restroom. The scenery is free and close...More
