One of the very first things I did when I got to Barcelona was take a cable car up to the castle of Montjuic (literally ‘Hill of the Jews’). I went not so much for the focus on the castle but for the gorgeous views of the city of Barcelona (my previous post features one of the many photos I took of the city). However, walking through parts of the castle were an added bonus.
Since I hadn’t done any planning before getting to Barcelona, I went on impulse. With little research, I took the cable car to get up to the top. I walked down because I at least knew what cardinal direction to head. It was fun to wind along small streets and cut through parks to make my own way back into the city. I would compare Montjuic to Piazzalle Michelangelo in Florence- it’s a great place to visit that is absolutely free to get a great view of the city.
