Magical Montjuïc

Eoghan was an awesome tour guide and he was super friendly. We had a wonderful stroll down from Castle Montjuic to the steps of the National Catalan Museum. We learned all about the gardens, visited the 1992 Olympic pool and it was all downhill. It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed it
Best Walking Tour Ever

Our guide Eoghan was fun and knowledgeable. His background in Spanish history was very helpful and gave us a clearer understanding. He took us through a beautiful walk through Montjuic from the castle to Pl de Espanya stopping at multiple viewpoints to explain their meaning. We enjoyed this tour. The pace was very comfortable and the route was gently downhill. My husband and I are so pleased that we experienced this walking tour. Thank you Eoghan.
Interesting walk DOWN Montjuic

We did tour with Owen and it was great. One thing to note specifically is that this tour starts up at the top of the Castel and goes all the way down to the bottom (we didn’t make it to the Magic Fountain but it was turned off anyway so no loss). The tour has lots of little nuggets of info about Barcelona and Catalan that were fun and a bit unusual.

We didn’t realize it went down the “mountain” so if you take this tour, and want to see the Castel or the Miro musuem do that first.

It wasn’t very “witchy” and not much “magic” so don’t be deterred by that.
