Planned Itinerary

Depart from the tour office located near Las Ramblas after initial training with your guide. Before climbing the Montjuïc mountain, the tour starts from the sea, visiting the Columbus Monument, the Port Vell and the Barcelona Maritime Station. Sighting the cruise ships entering the port, the small group will begin the climb through the Mossen Costa i Llobera Gardens which will bring out your most photogenic and imaginative side to take pictures with humor and/or art.

The climb continues and you will find the Poble Sec viewpoint, where there's a stop to take pictures and contemplate the views it offers. Behind is the Plaza de la Armada, full of sculptures and green gardens surrounding the Miramar Hotel. An old restaurant during the Universal Exhibition of 1929 and headquarters of the studios of Television Espanola (TVE) in Barcelona between 1959 and 1983, currently it is a luxury hotel that offers an enviable panoramic view to its clients. The Miramar building has been updated and converted into a five-star accommodation.

The tour continues climbing Montjuïc but without getting tired, thanks to the Segway, in the direction of Montjuïc Castle. You will cross the Joan Brossa Gardens to connect with the Mirador de l'Alcalde, another magnificent point to photograph the city. From there you'll see the Barcelona Cable Car, which has connected the upper part of Montjuïc with the sea for almost 100 years, through the Torre de Sant Sebastia in Barceloneta Beach.

Leaving behind the viewpoint, the grouop heads to the Montjuïc Castle, a fortified military construction with a marked warlike past. It has had a very important role throughout the history of Barcelona. Even today, you can see and photograph the canyons by which the city was defended.

From the top of the mountain, we will descend back to the tour office getting close to the neighborhood of Poble Sec – Paral.lel. An historic leisure and entertainment district of Barcelona from the end of the 19th century until the 1970s, it harbored many theatres, show halls and cabarets - hence it is known as the "Broadway Barcelona."
