As we were staying close to the park we were there several times. It's a good place to escape the city but you need good legs as it's all part of a large hill. We did try the funicular car up which cost €5 for one way. It gives a good view of the city, but the best view is from the top anyway, so if you don't mind walking you could save cash. At the bottom is an archealogical museum, which we didn't visit and also a greek amphitheatre set in a garden. Thats free. Above that is the Joan Miro foundation, which I will give a seperate review for, although there is a garden there too with a few sculptures for free. Half way up the mount, is the Olympic stadium which you can go in and there are several buildings you can check out for free. There is an Olympic museum but we never visited that. There is a botanical garden that stretches across most of the mountain, so you will find the odd cactus and flowers with plenty of unusual trees. All the time you have a great view of the city and harbour. If you make it to the top there is a citadel which I will also give separate review for. There is not much in the castle and the views are the same although you might be a few meters higher. When you walk down you can follow a walk until you pass the climbing school. after that is a tunnel which is completely covered with hand holds so people can practice climbing. Some are hanging upside down like bats as you go through. Follow the road and you will come to Poble Espanyol which will also get a review, a little further and you are at the Magic fountain. If your legs are good and you enjoy walking this is a really good park where you can easily spend 2 or 3 days and thats just the free part. Enjoy.
