    Great experience
    Fantastic tourist spot. Enjoyed the full walk from the 2 stone pillars up to the 4 collums and then up 100 steps to the museum. Amazing views! Cafe halfway up so we stopped for a drink and a sit down. Turn right at the museum, left at the carpark and up the path, this will take you all the way through to the main road where the Olympic stadium is on the left. Go past the Olympic stadium down the main road and it takes you to the cable cars which go up to mountjuic Castle. Now that is a view! Wowser! Only complaint. All fountains off due to draught. Such a shame as was looking forward to the magic fountain.

    Worth a visit
    The most beautiful views of the city. Panoramic. Picking out the landmarks from the balcony overlooking the Olympic pool. Gorgeous gardens. Ot very busy this time of year. The Barcelona FC is also lovely. Peaceful and once home to the 1992 Olympics

    Very beautiful
    It was a pretty nice view. We took a cab up to the cable car entrance and then took the cable car to the castle. The views on the cable car were a bit better than the ones on the mountain but we didn’t go on the top of the castle so the views were probably better there. Beautiful nature though in the park

    Museums, Views
    This very large park looms over the port and harbor and contains several world class museums. Also one comes here for spectacular views of the sea and the city below. There are a couple of Metro stations nearby, but the hill is steep and you may need a bus or cab ride to get to the upper reaches. There are escalators on one side.

    Stunning views
    We took the cable cars from the bottom to the top. Bought return tickets online for €30 for two people. Entrance at the bottom is right by the public transport. Small queue to go through. We were in a cable car with another couple on the way up, we got off at the top, walked down to the middle entrance and got a cable car in the way down just the two of us. Really quick, some swaying but only when we stopped briefly. Stunning views, love big park, would recommend. There is a small outdoor cafe halfway between the top and middle cable car entrance where you can buy grab a pint!

    Huge park, plenty to see and do
    Easy to get to. We got one of the buses recommended and got off at the top. We walked around the castle enjoying the views over the port, and then into the park. We walked down to the Olympic Stadium, and down to the plaza at the bottom. We love butterflies and it was great to see several species including Clouded Yellows, Long Tailed Blues, Lang's Short-Tailed Blues.

    Big green space, well worth taking the tourist bus up here to explore.
    Parc de Montjuic is the name for the big green space perched on the hill that borders Sants and looks over Barcelona and the sea. Montjuïc was originally developed for the 1929 International Exposition and then the 1992 Olympic Games and although most people come here for the Olympic stadium, I came to have a look at the swimming pool perched on the side of the hill. For anyone who watched the Barcelona Olympics the scenes of the High Board diving event with the competitors having that incredible view of the city of Barcelona behind them is something you do not forget. But the area is also well worth visiting for the lots of gardens on this big, green space which you can leisurely stroll through. The big attraction is Jardí Botànic with its collection of Mediterranean plants on steep slopes that provide a great viewpoint. But there are also the Jardins de Mossèn Costa i Llobera, featuring cactus, and the Jardins de Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer, The Jardins de Laribal, and the Jardins Joan Brossa, one of the newest gardens which opens out into a woodland park.

This is a gorgeous area of Barcelona which needs to be explored on foot. We had gone through this before on a HOHO bus, and it does not do justice to it.

Nice views, absolutely no signage when walking around the perimeter, no water tap,no toilet, ok to kill a couple of hours,not for wheelchairs, nice views but all in all disappointing,not worth the money for the cable car return as far as facilities go.

The views of Barcelona from Montjuic Park are brilliant, especially on a sunny day. The park area has many structures that were built for the 1929 Barcelona exhibition and more recently for the 1992 Olymics.

The view of the city and sea are amazing from here. Well worth the trip just for the view. We took a bus to the Parc, then walked down the steps. Would recommend this as a stop on your journey.

Large park with a pretty view of Barcelona!! Many steps involved and definitely seems empty in the evening. The funicular is a good way to get up.

Some parts of Montjuic are lovely, some parts are not so lovely. There are very few directional signs if you decide to walk back down from the castle, we veered off course and met quite a few people doing the same thing. There are no toilets either so be warned!
The Olympic park is worth a visit and the walk down to Font Magica was nice but there are a lot nicer things to do if your time in Barcelona is short.
