After visiting the beach my partner and I caught the cable car up the mountain to the gardens. The gardens are free the cable car was 11 euros each one way (think it's 16 each return)
There are 2 restraunts up there too both very...More
This is a nice cactus and succulent garden, but it could be better maintained. The location is quite nice overlooking Barcelona port, but you end up looking at all the large cruise ships rather than the sea...
The Garden was not as colorful as it would have been in other seasons, but it was an awesome visit. We took the cable car/lift from the beach and walked around the garden for over 2 hours. It does offer a breathtaking view of the...More
I stumbled upon this place while looking at maps of the Barcelona area. As a fan of cactus and succulents it seemed like it would be worth the trek. Most of the species were in bloom which made for a great visit. The trails meander...More
Not an easy place to find, but when you eventually fall across it, it is quite magical. The section at the bottom end is a little tired, but further up, time has been spent bringing it back to it's former glory. If you like Cactus's,...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
