If you feel like exploring Barcelona off the beaten path then you’re in luck, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll join one of our Barcelona hosts to explore Montjüic, a leafy neighborhood that has lazily blanketed itself over the hillside overlooking the harbor. The area takes its name from the Catalan for meaning ‘Jewish Mountain’, as it was once the home of the city’s Jewish community. You’ll visit Montjüic Castle, an old military fortress that has roots dating back to 1640, and stop by the Olympic Stadium (which has an unusual history - we’ll leave it up to your host to divulge details).

You could wander through The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, with its Romanesque paintings and Catalan art, then play hide and seek and look for the coolest bar in the neighborhood. Oh alright, here’s a clue: it’s hidden on the forested cliff-tops behind the castle. Barbecues, sunset drinks, and DJ sets, what more could you want? A magic fountain, you say? There’s one of those too; the Font Màgica de Montjuïc is an amazing display of motion, light, color, music, and water acrobatics. Life’s not bad up on the hill.

Please note that the show at the Magic Fountain takes place from June to the end of September, from Wednesday to Sunday at 21:30 so we recommend booking on these days and as an evening experience if you would like to include this.

    • Stop by one of the best kept secrets in Barcelona, a bar hidden in the pine forests in the heights of the area, enjoy a drink and hear the DJ spinning records
    • If you stick around into the evening, see the stunning lights show at the Magic Fountain
