Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Regal park with a very nice fountain show at night- had a lot of diversity of music for the fountain show- somewhat crowded but recommend you watch the show from the bridge above the escalators.

I did this on the cheap and had an amazing experience. If you don't want to spend loads of money on cable cars or queuing then keep reading.
I knew I wanted to see the views from Mount Montjuic and debated how to best do this without all the queues and cost. At the time I was several miles away so rode on the underground, jumped a few lines which took me to the station called Paral. El and I was able to surprisingly take the finacular half way up the mountain, for €2.40 one way ticket. A finacular is a little train that runs up and down. Whilst you don't get the views like you would from a cable car, you do see fab views from the mountain. The locals tend to use the finacular whereas the cable cars are geared at tourists. There are two cable car options. The first is called port cable car, which takes you from barceloneta Beach to the same place as the finacular. Once you get out of the finacular you walk around the corner and can get the second cable car further up the mountain. Just a note, the finacular is not suitable for wheelchairs, as a number of steps. For me, once I left the finacular I walked up a little hill, through a pretty park, I then found a sign telling you to go to a viewing platform. I walked up and found a lovely viewing place with a kiosk for refreshments. The viewing place was amazing. I then walked down the mountain towards the magic fountains. I went up around 6pm and was up there to see the sunset and stayed for the magic fountain display.

Relaxing. Generally most cities have somewhere to relax and cool down amidst the throngs of sightseers. This is no different. Central, near Plaza Espana.

The Montjuic hill and its park are so way more than the magic fountain many here are only writing about.
The park comprises a huge area in the southwestern part of town. You can access it by car with several free parking lots around (and some paying). If you don't have a car the best and most scenic way is by the cable car.
Once up, there's so much to explore: The Monjuic Castle - nice fortress with city views, Botanical gardens, old Monjuic cemetery, Joan Miro museum, Poble Espanol outdoor exhibition, National musuem of Catalonia (MNAC), the Olympic Stadium, cascade fountains including the magic fountain.
Some of these attractions are free, some are paying so decide yourself, but for sure you'll need at least half day for your visit.

This is a nice place to walk about for a while before you enjoy the magic fountain. It is also nearby the Arenas of Barcelona Mall.

We travelled up by bus from Pl Espanya. Its the 150 (saying something along the lines of Castell Montjuic on the front) which you get from outside the tourist booth. We used our T-Casual cards which also work on the metro etc. The card machine is not the one as you get on the bus, you need to pass the driver and you will see it on the right part way down the aisle.

Great, windy drive up to the top, with lots of great views. Your last stop is a handful of steps up to the castle. We then decided to walk down, a bit of a challenge at times due to lack of helpful signposts! There are brown signs for things like the Botanical gardens (which we visited), road signs, and a bit of guess work! Also some lamp posts did have maps which saved the day a couple of times! If you walk please go through Jardin Laribel which is absolutely stunning in the Spring. Flowers, wisteria, a waterfall, trees in full blossom - just gorgeous (and free!).

After a good wander with stops on the way we got back down to the magic fountain having thoroughly enjoyed getting away from the city. Not many places to eat or drink though, so bring supplies. In the Botanical gardens there were vending machines in the entrance, but no café! (They are missing a trick there)

Undoubtedly one of the mandatory places to go, it has an excellent park with a great view of the city, great for a long walk.

The museum it’s free after 3pm on Saturday
The fountain and cable car were closed for maintenance (March)

Easy trip from city center Barcelona via Metro and Funicular. Beautiful views from the top. We were there in January so it was quite chilly but I am sure i the spring it would be a great place to picnic, exercise and enjoy the park. Glad we saw it, was not a lot to see but it has some great info on the castle.
