1. Barcelona Montjuïc Walking Tour: Magic and Transformations
Begin your Montjuïc Walking Tour outside the Montjuïc Castle where you’ll hear how this hill is connected to the very foundation of Barcelona. From there, we’ll begin our walk in the colorful gardens and up to some incredible viewpoints. At Mirador del Alcalde, your guide will regale you with tales of the ancient migrant community that once lived here and the many evolutions of this unusual hilltop. We’ll enjoy this scenic viewpoint of Barcelona and then continue on to the Joan Brossa gardens. In these beautifully landscaped gardens, you’ll admire a statue dedicated to the traditional Catalan dance, La Sardana. Later, we’ll visit another monument to dance, this one for Carmen Amaya, the famous flamenco dancer with humble roots. Our garden-hopping isn’t done. In the Laribal’s Gardens, you’ll get to know the mystical side of Montjuïc. Here, centuries ago, witches and wizards used to gather. Walking down the hill, we arrive at our last stop, the Plaça d'Espanya (Spain Square). Admire the new architecture that the 20th century brought to Barcelona, such as the striking Museum of Catalan Art and the beautiful waterfall lined-walk. Before you go, make a wish at the stunning and sometimes musical Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, built in 1929 for the International Exhibition. Who knows? It just might come true!
