How to get to and around the park

Discover Montjuïc on foot

The best way to discover Montjuïc Park is by walking through its streets, paths and gardens. There are around twenty escalators for going up and down the mountain from Av Reina Maria Cristina. Walks can start or finish with the help of the forms of public transport highlighted on this page.

Montjuïc mountain is situated in the south of Barcelona, surrounded by the neighbourhoods of Poble-sec, Font de la Guatlla and La Marina and the Zona Franca industrial estate, the port and the Mediterranean sea. There are plenty of ways to get there and travel around the 376 hectares of this great urban park:

Metro or FGC railway
To get to Montjuïc, you have the following stations around the mountain:
- Espanya (L1, L3, L8 and other FGC lines)
- Poble Sec (L3)
- Paral·lel (L2, L3)
- Foc (L10 South)
- Foneria (L10 South)
- Magòria-La Campana (L8 and other FGC lines)

All these forms of transport, as well as the funicular and urban or metropolitan buses, can be used with integrated travel and season tickets (from the corresponding metropolitan area) and also with tourist travel cards.

Bus
The 150 bus sets off from Plaça d’Espanya and arrives at the castle having covered a good part of the mountain. The 13 bus connects Plaça d’Espanya and Montjuïc with La Marina, from where visitors can go up or down the mountain on a neighbourhood bus (125) and on the 23 bus, which goes as far as the Zona Franca estate. The 55 bus, which comes from the city centre, goes up the mountain through Poble-sec. The 107 bus goes up from Can Tunis and covers the streets by the Montjuïc Cemetery.

The Barcelona Bus Turístic has a red route that also goes up Montjuïc. Tickets can be bought here, although this service is currently suspended as a COVID-19 prevention measure.

Funicular
This connects Paral·lel station, where metro lines L2 and L3 arrive, to Montjuïc Park, climbing up 76 metres in under two minutes.

Cable Car
You can use the funicular's upper station to take the Montjuïc Cable Car to the top of the mountain, where the castle is located. On your return, you can go down to the Mirador de l’Alcalde view point. Tickets can be bought here or from the station.

The Port Cable Car connects the Miramar station, near the Mirador del Poble-sec view point, to the Torre de Sant Sebastià, in Barceloneta. Tickets can be bought from ticket offices.

Bicycles
Montjuïc mountain is ideal for a more athletic form of cycling, although bicycles, especially electric ones, can also be used as a means of transport. There are numerous Bicing stations within the boundaries of the neighbourhoods of Poble-sec and La Marina.

Car or motorbike
Taxis travel to Montjuïc Park just as they do the rest of the city. The advice is not to go up the mountain by private vehicle when there are large-scale or outdoor events which may cause disruption to traffic and lead to over-crowding at access points.
