On a tour that is slightly different from the typical tours in Barcelona, we’ll be visiting Montjuïc Hill. Don’t worry about the steep walk; there’s a fantastic system of escalators to take you up the hill, allowing you to move up fairly quickly and easily.
We’ll visit the only museum in the world exclusively dedicated to the great Barcelonian artist, Joan Miró. Inside this museum, you can see a great variety of his work, including tapestry, assemblages, his Burnt Canvases, and much more. Plus, you can take some fascinating pictures from the rooftop, where you’ll find some very colorful sculptures with Barcelona in the background.
We’ll get a closer look at the Olympic Ring, the scene of the 1992 Olympic Games, including the Stadium, the Indoor Sport’s Pavilion, and the Olympic swimming pools. The Summer Olympic Games changed the city of Barcelona for good. In fact, this is probably the very reason you are now looking into tours in Barcelona. The Games really positioned the city of Barcelona in the world, and were a great success. Do you remember how we lit the Olympic Cauldron? Or the diving competition with Barcelona in the background? Read about it in our Blog Post.
We’ll also tour the National Art Museum (MNAC) (optional), and if you are interested in modern architecture, we can add a visit to the Mies Van der Rohe Pavilion, or visit another surprising building just across the street, the Caixa Forum, an old factory, which has been transformed into an Art Exhibition Center.
We’ll also see the beautiful Plaza de España, built for the 1929 International Exhibition. If you would like to stay around this area to have some lunch, we can recommend some of our favorite places around Plaza de España; just a few minutes’ walk from the square you have some very traditional neighborhoods with excellent restaurants.
If you are an art lover, you definitely can’t miss the Miró Museum and Montjuïc Hill tour!
I was in Barcelona for two weeks with two different groups. I booked Skip the Line at the last minute just hoping for some generic info and no standing in line. What we got instead was two very good guides, great information, very professional, and a tour that far exceeded my expectations! This is a small company and now I know two of the three employees! I highly recommend it! I got quick responses to my questions via email, it was easy to pay in advance and they chose a very easy meeting place– especially since we were coming by Metro. Would definitely use it again!
Albert was great. He was informative and flexible helping us make the most of our tour. I highly recommend getting a private tour of this site. Without it, we would have missed so much. Thank you!

Carolina set the bar high for the tour experience. She speaks excellent English, knows the history of Barcelona, organizes the tour to maximize results and is a very pleasant person.
