When people think of Barcelona, it’s often Gaudi’s iconic architecture that comes to mind. While the Sagrada Familia is definitely worth the wait (in line that is), the day I spent high above the city on the less crowded Montjuïc Hill was a lot of fun.
Montjuïc was put on the map (literally) as a result of 2 major events – the 1929 Worlds Expo and 1992 Summer Olympics. Remnants of these events still remain, along with a cool fortification that’s made for exploring. Interested?
