We celebrated here on new years eve and it was rather disappointing. There was no information on the website that it will be an outside party with only one location to be. The music was quite caotic, the DJ wasn't mixing the songs just playing 50 seconds from one and then switching to the other. The drink bar was okay... More

It was an interesting excursion inside the city bit away from it all. A great place to eat and relax and look at the shops which had both typical tourist stuff and interesting hand made crafts. Lits to photograph.

Now I am not so into these tourist traps per say, but I really don't see this place as so much as a tourist place, as its form the 1920's, but more of a great place to potter, have a coffee, explore genuine handicrafts and art done live on site with great access to items that perhaps you would not...

We hopped off the bus and paid a visit here. There is lots of little stalls selling local produce and products. When we visited it was a mixture of everyday things mixed with an Xmas theme. A must is the wine, cheese and ham & sausage tasting. The local Herb liqueur is lovely but a little expensive you can buy... More

Poble Espanyol was recommended to us by a local. When we got to visit, we saw the different types of architecture from various regions of Spain. The only drawback to this is that it is commercialized and all these buildings house shops that sell all kinds of tourist items. They do have a restaurant with a Flamenco show, which was... More

I went here i the evening with some friends and I found it very interestings. There weren't many people so I thought that it's because it's too late.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
