The cool Montjuic mountain is often wrongly missed off visitors’ lists of must-sees in the city, but the parks, gardens and galleries are definitely worth a trip to, especially when the sun is shining. The shady woodland areas are perfect for picnics, in between visiting the various arts and culture institutions scattered over the hill. Probably the most celebrated, and certainly the most noticeable, is the MNAC, or Museum of Contemporary Art, housed halfway up, and facing Placa Espanya and the Magic Fountains. Its vast collection includes work from Catalan artists from the 12th to the 20th century, including works by Thyssen, Martorell, Casas and Huguet. On the other side of the hill, the striking Josep Lluis Sert building houses the Fundacio Joan Miro and its impressive permanent collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings. The building itself is just as outstanding, displaying the works within a light and airy setting that’s easy to approach and never feels cluttered. The gallery’s cafe sits in a lush garden terrace featuring Miro sculptures and enclosed by double-height glass walls.
