Montjuïc is a prominent hill overlooking the Barcelona harbour. For many years, it played a strategic part in the defense of the city and it’s one of the city’s natural elevations. Nowadays, this Olympic inspired district in the south-east of Barcelona has many attractions centred on the Parc de Montjuïc, an area complete with museums, a castle and fantastic city views.
Possibly even more exciting than the views themselves is the Montjuïc cable car, which takes visitors directly to the top of the city in the most exciting way possible. The Montjuïc cable car gives visitors the chance to sit in a cabin which can hold up to 8 people, and admire the panoramic views. This is far more comfortable than hiking the steep route up.
