Montjuic is a hill overlooking the city centre of Barcelona on
which are sited some of the city's show-pieces, including the main
sites of the 1992 Olympics; the Poble Espanyol (a replicated
Spanish village displaying art and architecture); the Joan Miro
museum; and the National Art Museum of Catalonia. There are also
some leisure attractions and cool green parks festooned with
fountains, popular for strolls on summer evenings. The magical
fountains of Montjuic are a popular attraction that entertain on
summer evenings with displays of light, colour and music.
Accessible by cable car from Montjuic, the Barceloneta port
district is below the hill. This former fishing village is now
renowned for its seafood restaurants and beach, which is lined with
boardwalks and cafes.
