Why locals recommend it
If you want some uphill bike-climbing exercise, head up Montjuïc. It’s not necessary to get to the highest point, where the castle is located, although it’s highly recommended if you want a full workout. But even just reaching the first level of the mountain allows you to enjoy spectacular views of the city and the port. The whole road up is a curvy labyrinth with tons of vegetation. Just get lost on its up and downs and enjoy the ride in any direction.

A marvelous view from the castle (which is also the Catalan museum of art) down on the city and an incredible water and music show with lots of pretty and giant water fountains. Google for the actual show-times during your actual season.

Theme Park
“This is possibly the coolest location for a theme park – on top of a mountain. It’s the only one in the city, and to get there you have to take the steep funicular. There’s a good mix of classic and more modern rides, with many suitable for all ages. It’s also next door to Sagrat Cor, atop which stands a huge statue of Jesus, and you can climb up to its base.”

Art Museum
“Surely "the" museum to visit in Barcelona. For the artist and for the building. Imagine Montcada Street, in the Gothic quarter, five mansions united to form a museum, lovely to visit. About Pablo Ruiz Picasso the museum is essential to understand his formative years. The genius of the young artist is revealed to us through more than 3,500 works that make up this permanent collection.”

Park
“he Parc de la Ciutadella is very idyllic and probably the greenest oasis in the megacity of Barcelona. It invites you to relax, to rebound and to go for long walks, as well as for a picnic. You can also use a rowing boat on the lake. On the grounds of the Parc de la Ciutadella, there are several attractions: the zoo, the Catalan Parliament. The Museu d'Art Modern is situated in the building of the parliament. The Zoological Museum and the Museu de Geologia are placed in the area of the park. ”

Church
“What i like most about this must-see in Barcelona is the exhibition they have in the underground of the cathedral with the models Gaudí created to build it During the summer is necessary to book it in advance if you want to go in, if not it would be almost impossible to get a ticket for the day”

Art Museum
“"National Art Museum of Catalonia"), abbreviated as MNAC, is the national museum of Catalan visual art located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Situated on Montjuïc hill at the end of Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, near Pl Espanya, the museum is especially notable for its outstanding collection of romanesque church paintings, and for Catalan art and design from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including modernisme and noucentisme. The museum is housed in the Palau Nacional, a huge, Italian-style building dating to 1929. The Palau Nacional, which has housed the Museu d'Art de Catalunya since 1934, was declared a national museum in 1990 under the Museums Law passed by the Catalan Government. That same year, a thorough renovation process was launched to refurbish the site, based on plans drawn up by the architects Gae Aulenti and Enric Steegmann, who were later joined in the undertaking by Josep Benedito. The Oval Hall was reopened in 1992 on the occasion of the Olympic Games, and the various collections were installed and opened over the period from 1995 (when the Romanesque Art section was reopened) to 2004. The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (Museu Nacional) was officially inaugurated on 16 December 2004.[1] It is one of the largest museums in Spain.”
