Barcelona upside down

C I T I N E R A R I E S | Barcelona upside down

Next day’s destination was Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Montjuïc. But we found a very convoluted itinerary to reach it. The Pavilion is right near the Magic Fountain, so we started with the end: the night light show.

Here we have an itinerary ending at Font Magic, with La Boqueria appetit, Las Ramblas entertainment, and a delicious inspiration, a castle playground too:

We started our morning walk on Las Ramblas, with a delicious breakfast at La Montserratina Patisseria. The street shows always add color to an itinerary!

A refreshing stop and more color in La Boqueria, yum ananas-pitahaya juice!

Adventure trip to Castell: we took a bus to Paral·lel metro station, the funicular after that, and we topped it with a telefèric ride for best views.

Montjuïc trek to Fundació Joan Miró: kids are tired, museum crowded, we are all hungry, so we continue to the magic fountains looking for a place to eat too. We enter The Gardens of the Font del Gat, an invigorating surprise! We even find a cats restaurant, but it’s closed for a private party, arrrgh!

A somewhat unplanned stop at the Archaeological Museum, but this is such a lovely and kid-friendly museum that we cannot resist! It has a wealth of books for kids that I’m trying to find now in English.

We finally find a cafe between MNAC and Font Magic, yum! And a missed spot, Caixa Forum / Casa Ramona by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, adding it to the wish list for next trip.

We reach the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion and Font Magic, lights!

Montjuïc is definitely a huge park, a green city inside a city, and our itinerary can be easily split in several days. I definitely want to go back for Poble Espanol, we visited it in our previous trip and my memories make it a nice destination for kids. More beautiful Montjuïc itineraries, to be checked the next trip!
