#2 FLY OVER BARCELONA WITH THE FUNICULAR
What’s incredible about Montjuïc is that the trip itself to reach it is great part of the fun. In fact, in order to ride up to Montjuic Castle, you have to take a cable car, called Funicular de Montjuic, from which you can enjoy an amazing view of the city.
#3 BE ENCHANTED BY COLORFUL WATERS GAMES
Once you are in Montjuïc, don’t forget to wait for the water games of the Font màgica in Plaça d’Espanya. Kids will be captured by its incredible choreography of water, colors and music. To check the lighting hours visit the Ajuntament de Barcelona website.
